I think it's wonderful! You have plenty of projects to choose from and never have to work on something that you don't feel like doing!

I have to keep at least 2 going so I can take a break if needed. I can't wait to add this lapghan to by WIP list!

Do I understand correctly that the scarf doesn't have to be red?

That is correct. You can make it any color you want, but don't use a gender-specific color like pink.

The scarves are for guys and girls, and need to work either way to make things easier for those distributing the scarves to the orphans.

Ok you have twisted my arm. I keep reading this thread and now I am comitting to making a scarf or two or three! Off to dig through my stash and find a non gneder specific yarn. I think I have a nice navy blue in there somewhere:thinking:.

I think our offerings should get plenty of use...I believe they are being sent out as Valentine's care packages...Lot's of nippy weather left to go around in February!

I'm really happy to be a part of this!! I chose the 4x4 woven by Sarah White as my base pattern (Pic to come...It's only 2 1/2 feet long so far)

My son is including a gift card with my scarf and (thanks for the idea, Shandeh), postage to help defray the cost of shipping.

I feel all warm and fuzzy and it's got nothing to do with it being 85 degrees here in NY today! LOL

Is everyone finished with their scarf? That September 1st deadline is fast approaching!

I actually cast on my scarf yesterday, so I hope I'm not too late!

Uh-oh! I thought the deadline (to be received) was Oct. 15th. I have started my scarf but I've had to take a rest because my hands/wrists are really hurting. I had 3 projects going at once and I really over-did it trying to finish. Now I'm behind on all 3 projects since I haven't been able to knit in several days.

Do any of you know of a quick cure? Or is no-knitting the only thing that helps? I've tried heat, cold, and different ointments but only get temporary relief.

I'm sorry you're in pain, McKnitty.

I think the only thing that really works is REST.

I have pain in my left wrist all the time, because it never gets a rest. Computer time, Knitting, Piano, Organ.

There are also remedies if you do an ergonomic study of your environment. Sometimes changing to a different chair helps. Your arms should be free at your sides when you knit (I think).
