Here’s a quick shot of my latest knitting project that has been keeping me sane while I wait for my architect to get me the latest set of drawings for the bakery build out (more on that to come soon).
So far, I’m a little over 1/2 way through and have completed the first half of this beautiful leaf lace scarf from purlbee.com. Figures, that I would find a free pattern from a shop that was around the corner from my first NYC job at Scholastic. I think I’ll have to pay them a visit next time I’m in the city. I so love Ravelry for making it so easy to find such awesome free patterns without having to spend 5 gajillion hours online scouring sites through google!
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in order to do my small part, I’ve made a pink keyhole scarf that I’ll donate to Lisa Spodak for raffle at her fundraiser event later in the month. The pattern is based on the Windy City Scarf designed by Jennifer Mindel that appeared in Debbie Stoller’s Stitch ‘N Bitch book, slightly modified as I used a cashmerino yarn in one color and created a slightly wider scarf (the photo has the scarf folded in half lengthwise to look more like the breast cancer awareness pink ribbon).
Breast cancer has affected many women close to my heart – brave women who shouldn’t have to go through this battle – but will until there is a cure. I’ll continue to donate to foundations like Susan Komen and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and hope you will find it in your heart to donate what you can too.
