What Have I Been Up to You Ask?

Why Christmas knitting of course. Which means I can't show you any of it as it is all top secret for another few weeks.

One thing I can tell you about is Anne Hanson's effort to help get people out knitting scarves for the Red Scarf Project. The idea of this is that orphans who have aged out of the foster care system have very little support. The Red Scarf Project make up a care package, delivered near Valentine's Day to show these people that they are not alone or forgotten.

As an added carrot Anne has put together a thread on Ravelry. Anyone who posts a picture of a finished scarf ready to be mailed out for the December 15th deadline is entered in a draw for an amazing prize donated by many different wool vendors.

There's still time. It took me two days to knit up my scarf. Pics tomorrow as right now it's wet and blocking (not to mention really to dark for pictures.)
