Current Knitting: Irish Hiking Scarf

Each year from September 1st to December 15th, the nonprofit organization Foster Care to Success collects handmade red scarves to send out in care packages to the college students it serves.

This year’s red scarf is drying and almost ready to go to the post office.

The picture doesn’t convey the squoosh factor in this scarf. The yarn is a light worsted 100% wool singles and really makes the cables pop. Very nice yarn.
