Friends are a vital necessity to life. Their companionship, influence, and connection help make us who we are.

Gotcha, Sandy!

Knitting: Scarf
Something about the way this scarf knit up, especially with this fun red yarn, made me think of those ubiquitous molded plastic building blocks, and since it is being sent to the Red Scarf Project for college kids from foster homes, I think it’s an appropriate transition piece as these young adults enter a new stage of their lives.
Knitting: Cowl
A thinner, hipper version of my Brickworks Scarf (originally designed for the Red Scarf Project, one of my favorite charities) this infinity scarf will add a touch of color to your outfit and a touch of warmth to your neck. It knits up quickly and is fun to wear.

Knitting: Blanket - Other
The latest in our series of afghan blocks for the Big 10 Knit-a-Long for Charity is this simple eyelet number that is fun and festive looking. I particularly like how it looks good in either a dark or light colored yarn--something that isn’t always the case when you start throwing in pattern stitches that you want to actually show up in the kni...
Knitting: Scarf
Using Barbara Walker’s purl twist fabric for inspiration, the Thousand Mile Journey scarf features a soft texture that looks a little like tire tracks. It’s a lovely way to send a hug to a foster care student as they set out on the road of life.
