Thanks to Mary, I sent off a pink scarf to participate in the Think Pink Challenge.
If you're not into links, the Challenge consists of trying to collect 1000 (yes, thousand!) pink scarves for women facing breast cancer by the end of September. They'll be distributed in October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
I made this very whimsical scarf from remnants of a former prolific knitter's stash. She used mostly acrylics, which works great for a scarf that you want to be able to clean. Lots of reds, whites, and pinks. It was fun to make as I used a sampler approach as suggested in Kids Knitting.
I hope this can lift some one's spirits this October. If you have time and some yarn in your stash, this might be a fun cause to support - with your needles, even!
