Knitting projects: art and charity
I had such a great time making two sweet little cabley baby hats for Caps to the Capital (which I haven't sent yet, because I'm a flake), and since I'm in a perpetual state of procrastination with the project I really need to be knitting (a baby blanket for my sister-in-law in Utah, due any day now), naturally, I'm casting about for new projects to occupy my day off.
Larissa's working on a book on knitalongs, so naturally her blog is the first place I turn for distraction. If you, too, are looking for something to do with your idle time and your sock yarn she has a great project up this week! It's a square-along, and you can register at her testalong sign through January 20 (you have 'til February 1 to finish and deliver your squares). She'll only use 20 squares for the book project, and all the rest will be knit up into blanket(s) for Warm Up America.
Procrastination, knitting and a good cause! What could be a more perfect use of my idle time these cold cold January days?
