Meet my new bus project. A trend has been developing in my scarf knitting over the past six months or so. With any other project, I begin with an intended recipient in mind. But with wraps and scarves, because of the absolute flexibility in sizing, I've started four without first choosing a recipient. The first was a mohair shawl with a simple lace pattern that became a Christmas gift for the amazing Sam. The second and third were Zombie 1 and Zombie 2. The fourth is pictured. While on the bus, I realized that it would suit Kerry, who I've gotten to know while riding the 65. I suggested it to her, and after a mild shock, she agreed.
Is there a wrap or scarf swap along out there in the blogosphere? If not, I might start my own. I even have a name: Wrap du Monde, after Cafe du Monde, which I was reminded of while drinking from an eponymous mug. Oddly, this all went down in Boston's Cafe Nation, which has an assortment of mugs from other places. I shamelessly seek out my favorite mug when there.
Now that you mention it ...
Dorothy, I considered entering the Amazing Lace. My daughter is starting preschool in the fall, and certainly she needs a hot-pink lace sweater (in washable mercerized cotton, of course) for the first day of school. I missed the deadline for signing up, so I'd have to run as a bandit.
