The Red Scarf Inventory

It's hard to overstate how well this project has gone. Starting with a simple idea to knit and sell a few scarves to friends, we've raised close to $4,000, most of which will go to the Hope Foster Home, made friends around the world, and seen some amazing works of art from generous knitters. Another round of thanks to everyone involved!

We are still holding about 50 of these beauties, all of whom would like to find good homes. Please drop me a line at if you would like to adopt one (for a small contribution to the cause, of course).

Shirley models Big Orange (still available) with optional accent brooch.

Brenda shows off Fluffy (which she bought) -- a fur contribution from Deborah.

A visit to the Pendletons' turned into an impromptu scarf party with the neighbors. Here, Sheila and Randa pick out a brooch for Waves (still available).

The Room that Scarves Built (Well, Not Really...)

Apparently Christina and our friends at Hope Foster Home got the first check. They hung this sign on the staff bathroom (the room we sponsored) and sent us the pic.

Red Scarf Project 12: The Check is in the Mail

Monday was a great day for the RSP because we finally sat down and wrote the first big check -- $1,500 as planned. The only question left to answer was whether we actually write a physical, isn't-that-quaint check and send it via snail mail OR whether we go online and transfer funds electronically. Tradition won out, mainly because we couldn't determine the last name on the receiving account in question and because I wanted to put my name on an actual check.

All those scarves, all the publicity, all that time and now the Hope Foster Home has something to show for it. Yay!
