Scarf and Winners today.
The finished scarf. This is two balls of The Cat's Meow - Patina. It is just over 44" long and is 4" wide. When it is folded in half twice it is 2" thick. The ends you see sticking out are the total amount of yarn leftover.
The K1,*P2,K1* end P2 - side. The ribs are more obvious on this side.
The *K2,P1* - side. This side looks like Stockinette without the curl. Exactly what I was hoping for.
Someone held the scarf and then so prettily asked "Scarf for me, please Mommy?" So she has a new scarf which she proudly wore even though it was quite warm in here last night.
"I LUFF my Scarf!"
Now the prizes for the Dishcloths for my Friends donations. Since six people sent stuff and I had six prizes, I assigned each person a number according to when I received their dishcloths then I used this Random Number Generator to draw the numbers and here's how it all worked out.
The Grand Prize - six skeins of Boreal Forest, one ball of Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and one pair of 7" handmade wood knitting needles. Goes to my Grandma. Cool! Totally random generator I swear! Hey, crap! Now I've got to figure out something else to give her for Christmas... anyway continuing on ...
The second prize - five skeins of an un-named colourway (bright red/orange/white)goes to Kristy.
The third prize - two skeins of Double Double goes to Laura.
The fourth prize - two skeins of Glacier (I have to redye them, they're getting ready to go in the pot now.) goes to Charity.
The fifth prize - one skein of Pumpkin Patch goes to Kay.
The sixth and final prize - one skein of Johnny-Jump-Up goes to Jen.
Congratualtions to all the winners. I saved all of your addresses so no need to send them again. I'll be mailing them all out by the 21st at the latest. Thank you for contributing to making someone's day a bit better and their new place a bit more home-y.
I will still take any dishcloths anyone wants to send and give them as Christmas gifts to women at the local women's shelter. If you would prefer, you could make some and give them to your local women's shelter.
The more someone thinks they matter, the better their chances of staying out of violent relationships. The more women that get out of bad relationships, the fewer children entering the circle of violence.
