Just a quick post today…. yesterday, I forgot to include a photo of my progress on the Breast Cancer Ribbin’ Scarf. As you can see, like many of the projects I vowed to finish by the end of “stitch or cut floss” March, I don’t have much left to do. All that needs to be done now is to Kitchener stitch the two halves together–a little trickier than regular Kitchener stitching (as if that weren’t tricky enough) because of the 2 X 2 ribbing–and to add the beaded edging. I’m sure that somewhere among my many knitting books and magazines, or somewhere on the internet, there’s someone who has already figured out how to do Kitchener stitch on ribbing. I just have to find this information. I love research (really).
This project is rather special to me since I lost my mother to breast cancer eleven years ago. I think about her every time I look at this scarf.
