"That way I can put a hook in it to hold up my bra" Have an uplifting birthday!
I did not knit on my sock too much this weekend but I am at the heel. Here is the scarf I blocked (I've had that cutting board for over 30 years) and am donating for an Auction on September 10th. This is what my friend, Judith, had to say when she asked for donations.
"The Golf Tournament raises money for melanoma research and is given to Dr.Wen Jen Hwu who treated my daughter at Memorial Sloan Kettering. Dr. Hwu develops trial protocols to specifically treat melanoma. She is one of (if not the top) clinical research physician in the country specializing in advanced stage melanoma. Her research lab at MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas, is currently breaking new ground with tumor attacking vaccines. I've seen some of the works of art you create and would be proud to have them in our auction. In 2006, the tournament and auction raised $36,000 for Dr. Hwu's research. It's bittersweet. My daughter didn't get the miracle, but we hope to be a part of providing miracles for future patients. Ashley's goal as a kindergarten teacher was to "touch a life"... she still is." Judith is a very special person and I love helping and working with her.
This yarn is from Ironstone Yarns "Pizzazz" it's three yarns: Felicia, Eyelash & Paris Nights, Colorway #6. It was a bear to knit. It was a basic knit with yo. If you get in closer to the blocked pic you can see that it actually has some detail.
I also have set up my bead board and gathered up all my supplies so I can make a gift for my KVVS pal.
