During my blogging adventures I have crossed paths with many wonderful women.
Two of these lovely ladies are the inspiration for this post:
of 2 Bags Full
If these two bloggers have not met, yet, I would like to introduce them to each other:
Sue meet Vicki, Vicki meet Sue. :-)
Unbeknownst to them (until now) these two women have collaborated on this project:
It is part of the following scarf donation project for breast cancer
coupled with a scarf pattern intended for charity:
Vicki is collecting scarves for women fighting breast cancer
and Sue wrote a scarf pattern for charity.
How perfect is that?
Both have generously given their time, energy and love to these heartfelt causes.
So here's my part:
A "pink" yarn run, was in order.
The stash-busting rule was broken, but goodness gracious, this was for a cause. ;-)
(The stash simply did not produce a color appropriate for this project.)
Boy, it was nice to choose any pink yarn from the entire array of pink.
Funny thing, once I arrived home after the purchase, one of the skeins was missing.
To make a long story short, I dropped it upon exiting the store.
Lucky for me, a sweet customer turned it in and when I called they had it waiting for me.
So I have come to the conclusion that yarn people are good honest folk.
(We already knew that, right?)
Hmmmmm...just had some funny thoughts:
CSI: Your Local Yarn Shop
White and Black Market of Yarn
The Yarn Maffia
Can you imagine what a sting operation would be like with these criminals?
Oops, sorry I digress.
Back to the scarf:
A diagram and videos are included, as well.
She even posts about blocking the scarf here.
No matter what your learning style, she has given you the tools to help.
The pattern is free. Sue graciously asks that you make a donation to a charity of your choice.
I chose Vicki's, in hopes to bring a smile and a little love to a victim of this devastating disease.
Vicki's post includes an address to mail the scarves.
If you are interested in donating a scarf, the project goes through
Lots of love and gratitude to Sue and Vicki for their loving efforts!
