I am so excited! The Traveling Scarf is ready to hit the road.
Bookmark this post to follow the progress of the scarf.
At present the scarf is scheduled to travel to:
- Cheltenham, England
- Lancashire, UK
- Peterborough, On (x2)
- Indianapolis, IN
- East Peoria, IL
If you would like to add your city to the list contact me to have the scarf visit you for you to knit your bit.
I will be adding some details and more images of the scarf as it grows through its travels.
The portion I knit:
The wool is Patons Classic Wool.
The colour is Harvest
Needles 4.5mm(US 7)
Gauge 20sts x 26 r= 4 ins (1cm)
I will be adding the stitch patterns later in the comments below.
I would very much like to thank everyone who volunteered and everyone who participated. Unfortunately, one of the people who requested to participate did not follow through on the spirit of this project and did not pass it along to the next person. This is very disappointing to everyone involved and I wish I could give you a better update.
I apologize to everyone. I did not foresee this happening. I assumed everyone who requested to participate would be genuine.
I do have a bit of good news though! There is a new global knitting project beginning.
This is a great way to use up your scrap yarn and save a life at the same time. Please jump in and show you care!
The Last Knit. This is an awesome video. Are you as obsessed about your knitting?
I am starting a new project for fun. I participated in the YarnForward project and got a such a great thrill out of knowing my knitted piece is being viewed half way around the world so I thought I would start a project called the “Traveling Scarf”. This is a project that is intended to unite knitters around the world .
I will start a scarf and knit 4″ (10cm). I will then mail it on to another knitter who will knit another 4″ and then post it on to the next person. When the scarf has been knit by 18 different people it will be 72″ (180cm) long. Ship it back to me so I can document it and then I will have a draw to see who gets to keep the finished scarf or I can donate it to a charity. Then we can start another.
If you would like to participate please contact me at email@example.com. Put “traveling scarf” in the subject line of your email and I will be in touch to make arrangements to send the scarf to your so you can knit your bit.
