It's time to start knitting that red scarf!

Due to the overwhelming response to last year's Red Scarf Project (over 7,500), the deadline for submitting a scarf for the 2008 giveaway is October 15. Scarves can be sent in any time between Sept 1 and Oct 15, so don't wait until the last minute. Mine is underway, with pictures soon. It will be good travel knitting as we travel to Boston to take DD to college.

In the meantime, I have a finished object to show off!
It still needs to be blocked, but I managed to crochet an edging around the neckline. I've decided that the armholes don't need edging, mostly because I couldn't figure out how to crochet loosely enough to maintain the size. The original length was too short, so I picked up the cast on edge and added several rows of ribbing. The yarn is Artfibers Rosetta, a mercerized cotton tape, so should be comfortable in the summer. I'm a little concerned about the looseness of the stitches, so found a navy camisole to wear underneath.

On the needles we have the Fawkes socks in the STR Firebird colorway, the cabled cotton pullover and a new handle for the Big Booga bag. Next up are a lacy scarf from some sock yarn and another pair of socks. Several of the sweaters in the Fall IK and No Wool for You are calling me, time will tell.
