The Pink Scarf Project




The other me has been following Vicki, of the blog "2 Bags Full" for a while now.  Vicki is hosting this FABULOUS event/project to raise awareness and support for breast cancer patients.  She is asking for donations of pink scarves from anyone and everyone in the blogosphere who will be kind enough to oblige.  She is generously giving away a GORGEOUS, one-of-a-kind wrap that she knitted especially for this project.  If you have ever seen her knitted nests, you know that she can't make anything that isn't just perfection itself.  (If you haven't been so fortunate as to have seen the nests, go here to see The Modest Peacock's favorite ones..)

Lucy Jane may be a historic, English "character" version of a present-day Georgia girl (don't miss the difference between someone "in character" and a "looney with split personalities".  I am solidly the first of the two!), but getting creative with the fiber arts is definitely one area where the two personas blend!

For all of our readers, Lucy Jane and The Modest Peacock alike, here's an added incentive to joining in with Vicki's wonderful project.  Anytime you send her a scarf and post a comment on her Pink Scarf Project Page that you have done so, come here (there will be a button on my sidebar shortly) and post a comment telling me that you have done so, and you will have an entry to win this Lucy Jane Pennybright "Hope" elephant, complete with her very own pink scarf!  (The mailing address to send the scarves and all of the wonderful details are on her blog at the above link.)



The drawing will be held NEXT October 1st when Vicki's project ends, AND I will also accept comments on this The Modest Peacock post about the project.  (But only one entry for the ellie per scarf made and sent!! You get to choose which blog to link to.)

So what are you waiting for??  Go to Vicki's blog, find out all the details, and start knitting (or crocheting, sewing, or whatever it is you do) a pink scarf to send her way!!  Best of luck winning the wrap and/or "Hope"!

PS- Here is my first scarf to send.  What do you think? :)
