    Knitters are amazing! 

    Both my SnB group and a monthly Saturday group agreed to knit scarves for the local group, PADS, which works with homeless people.  At the end of February, we were able to deliver 20 scarves to the organization, still in time for this cold, lingering, nasty winter.  I am so proud of my fellow knitters, whenever there is a call, they step up.  This is right on top of knitting for the American Heart Association Go Red charity event.

    Here are some photos that we took before delivering them.

    I chose to make a shawl, this is the pattern In the Age of Brass and Steam.  Just wish that it had been a bit larger.  We hope to repeat this next Fall, and I will make a couple of shawls for that.

    Blocking is Everything! 

    I finally gave a proper blocking to my doily lap blanket, otherwise known as the Hemlock Ring Blanket,  that I made a couple of years ago.  It looks so much better than the lump that has been sitting on my couch for the past 2 years.  Blocking is everything!

    And I am almost finished with my KAL mystery scarf project from Janel Laidman’s Knitterati sock club.  3 rows from the end and I run out of handspun yarn!  Luckily I love Fiber Optic so much that I had the end of a blue-green gradient as a single.  I Navajo plyed it (with a couple of practices), and have what I think will be a lovely blue ending to this scarf.

      Yesiree, blocking *is* everything! Your doily looks great! If I could justify knitting another one of these, I’d do it in a second!
