Love Scarf Southern California

Now is the time to start knitting and crocheting for the Southern California Love Scarf Project. Our scarves will be delivered to City of Hope in Duarte on Valentines Day.

If you would like to participate, send an email to lovescarfproject (at) gmail (dot) com and we'll let you know where to send your scarves.

And right now is a great time to pick up super soft yarn for your Love Scarf project at JoAnn's because every skein of yarn is on sale this week.

Happy knitting and crocheting!

Since we're helping people and all...

I broke my foot this holiday season, a week before Thanksgiving. My cast will come off 2 days after New Years! Happy Holidays!

I knew I needed a boot cozy. After an extensive search of the internet, ebay and etsy, all I found were some TOE cozies.

I decided to knit myself a boot cozy for my aircast. I think it turned out rather well considering I have only ever successfully knitted a scarf (and not a FANCY one like some of the scarves that were turned in to NYC LSP).

So, with the rest of the yarn of course I made an equally grandma-kitschy scarf for LSP. The cozy, though, took NO time and has been such a sweet spot amongst this not-so-sweet if you spy anyone hobbling around, consider a cozy with your leftover yarn!

Chicagoland Delivers

I was in town when the Chicagoland Lovescarfers delivered 113 scarves to the Edward Cancer Center. The patients and staff were so pleased with the beautiful donation. Many of the knitters learned how to this year, just for LSP.

Kudos to you!
