Sometimes it just works out that way-

Two days ago, I wandered over to Trish's blog and read about the Red Scarf project. I don't participate in many formal charity things, because I do a lot of little things throughout the year. The Red Scarf project struck a chord with me; they make prezzies for kids who age out of foster care. I aged out of foster care.

Yesterday, I received a package from Daryl-I'd helped her locate some black Katrina on sale. She sent me the Katrina in white (and pink) we'd agreed to swap, and-a beautiful red scarf and some red mohair yarn. Interesting that I got a red scarf.

I can take a hint. I'll look for the right stitch pattern today.

You are such a doll!

A perfect use. I hope the yarn is fun to knit with. Daryl

What a good project for the red mohair!! I knit scarves for a guy at UF to take when they went over to adopt their daughter from China. He stills get the occasional picture of some scarf wearing someones and it's been almost 3 yrs.

I've been seeing alot of great charity projects in the blog world lately - I like doing "in my neighborhood" charity (knits for preemies at our children's hospital) but would like to add a "world" project soon - maybe this one. (Polynesian Pools is available at http://www.mamaespot.com/eshop/ - Erin is great to deal with and her yarns are terrific)
