Red Scarf

Here's a scarf I've started this week for a red scarf project that you can read about here. The scarves go to women who are recovering from heart troubles. Both my parents had that kind of trouble a couple of years ago, so it's a cause I care a lot about. I knitted this mostly in the car on the way to and from Massachusetts Friday and Saturday of this week - it would be about five inches longer if I hadn't taken out the first few rows a bunch of times. Hence the yellow lifeline - if I make a mistake now I would never be able to pick up the right stitches a row or two down!! This is my first real lace project - it's a knitty pattern, branching out.

Oh and about the Ebright Azimuth - the picture is really just proof that I'm a geek. It's the highest point in Delaware, at a phenomenal 447.85 feet above sea level! Upon further research, I learned that only Florida's highest point is lower.

Love the scarf! Did you wave at me when you came to MA?

Hope your week is good....I unfortunately have to go back to work. Blech!!!

How do you like that scarf pattern? I have it in the back of my mind to make it in the cascade premier (cotton tencel) for a mother's day gift for dad's girlfriend. Geek? No more than most of us! Well, the most of us that I know anyhow!

Ah yes, azimuth - that rings a bell now. I like your scarf! I have been thinking of "branching out" into lace someday soon - you shall have to share your horror stories...
