Holy Cow! The scarves are starting to come in. and I have to tell you, I like this pattern. I also get a little nostalgic when the “V” pattern and the first year’s 3-stripe pattern arrive. What’s really cool about Knit Your Bit right now: I’m starting to get some scarves from knitters who are reminding me that this is their third year participating. I can’t believe it’s been so long. I also love to get letters from “old friends.”
I *just* opened a box from the Humboldt Iowa Knitters and Crocheters. 87 squares! Thanks Ms Betty for organizing the group. They are just lovely! This means it’s time to rally my volunteers to help me start connecting squares. I’m tempted to put the knitters/crocheters who show up for the next Knit-in at the Museum (on Saturday, November 8 from 12-4 by the way) to work on this Knit Your Itty Bit project.
Also today I got a call from one of the VA Centers I recently sent a box of your scarves to. They loved them! In fact, they asked for more Veterans’ Day because they think the vets will really enjoy feeling thought of then. I agree! So if you have started your scarves, think about sending them this way soon so I can get them out. The holidays are also a great time so share, as all you generous crafters know, so keep on keeping on! It’s nice to see the program pick up again after the summer slowdown.
