I gave up on the lace scarf for now. I just wasn't feeling it. I don't have the concentration that I should for this project so I'm shelving it for the time being. It will get finished someday, that's a definite.
I started up a new charity knitting project courtesy of Shandeh on Knitting Help. It's the White Christmas project and I just love it. Feel free to join up! Here's my first square in progress:
The yarn I'm using is Caron's Simply Soft worsted weight in white. I used this brand for my son's afghan and loved it. It's 100% acrylic but it's very nice to work with. PLUS it's washable AND dryable. You really can't beat that for a charity project. Anything that must be hand washed just isn't reasonable in my opinion.
I'm still working on the Palindrome scarf and I plan to knit up the hat as well when I'm finished with the scarf. Modifying the pattern to fit sport weight will be a bit of a challenge but I'm up for it!
