Just a quick update about the Scarf raffle - they are pulling together a nice bright poster with a good pic, and the Manager at Starbucks has spoken to the manager at the local geek/comic book store and they are going sell raffle tickets for the Dr Who scarf! that should help with raising money  Cheesy

That is wonderful...every little bit will help!  You really need to get on making your hubby one!  I am making a much smaller version for myself that is actually wearable...or maybe I will stick to my Dr. Who hats... Grin.

BTW--I have mailed you another parcel with my six foot scarf piece and some FAMOUS Redheart yarn for you to try! Grin

I hope you win it for your hubby!

Here is the piece I sent to bushbaby...it was great to use up a few balls of leftover yarn, but a royal pain to weave in all the ends! Grin

I managed to use up a few balls of yarn without having to weave in ends. WOAH! I just held the end of the last one over the end of the new and worked them together. Would that work for knit like it does for crochet? I really like those stripes, AIMR.

ETA I sent a box on Monday that had about 4 feet (maybe) and some extra yarn.

I think holding the ends over the new biut does work - thats what my crochet-mad friends do.

cool Smiley we look forward to getting it  Cheesy

This picture doesnt do this justice - it is so bright & squwishy in real life Smiley I can see it being one of the scarves we sell at the end of the year.

It is much easier to catch the ends while crocheting...knitting, not so much...for a bit, I was doing it every few rows, but toward the end, I left them and spent time in front of the tv cursing and weaving.... Grin.

lol I realized as I was packing it that I worked the first stripes in seed stitch as well...of course, that had to end in order to be done...

I have been working on a seed stitch scarf using yarn from cackle for well over a year...it is my favorite look, but my least favorite stitch (other than linen stitch)...

So yesterday my knitting group and I spent 4 hours joining the scarf bits up into several very large sections - we didn't join it in to one as that would be too awkward to move & store just yet.

Total length so far...... 287.75 metres!! that means we have only 34.25 meters to go!!!   Grin

And the 'Dr Who scarf' raffle has made about 150 in its 1st week so far.
