|Scrappy Lenghtwise Scarf by Zona Sherman|
On Sunday, February 6th (Super Bowl Sunday) starting at noon we will knit the Scrappy Scarf from Zona Sherman http://zona.livejournal.com/2008/09/11/
This is the link which will take you to the Ravelry page where you can buy the pattern for $2. I will provide some refreshment and some super hot stash for you all to use. You will bring a few skeins of your hot stash (none of great aunt Sadie's Orlon sale yarn from the bargain basement at Wieboldt's); and the appropriate needles (read the pattern). Your contribution to the collective stash entitles you to a 20% discount on a skein of yarn (if you just can't resist, and you know if something goes out, something can go in!) I had been thinking that to keep things simple it would be best if we all contributed worsted weight yarn, but I have some nice sock yarns, and if you peruse the projects from other knitters you will see some gorgeous Scrappy Scarves knit in fingering and sock. So I leave the choice to you. I will have ample amounts of both.
Another couple things: We don't have enough participants for Beginning Crochet. I will push it back one week and see if more people sign up.
I don't know what the groundhog's going to see next week, but I've lived in Chicago a long time and as I recall this cold, gloomy weather sticks around for a while which means we need to keep knitting to stay sane. To cheer us up a bit I ordered some new yarn, just sayin'-- stay tuned. I'll post when it arrives which should be early next week.
