Scarves for New Orleans

drmel94's picture

These are scarves I just made to send to the Bundle Up New Orleans project. The brown one is a moebius scarf and is what I was working on when my tendonitis flared up. I had to finish it while wearing a clunky brace. It's a 100% polyester yarn that I really don't like, but it's easy care and should help keep someone warm. The green scarf is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, which is a little better. Made that one on the knitting loom and am working on a companion headband to send with it. It's so chunky that you can't tell it's ribbed - just looks like stockinet on both sides.

That looks lika a warm

That looks lika a warm scarf. I'm inspired by all you who knit for emergencyhelp and planning to knit for Moldavia next fall. All former sovjet republics are very poor and a lot of children lives without roof over their head and many have lost their parents in poverty, alcoholismand drugs.

Just think what the world

Just think what the world woulld be like if we spent money on clothing and feeding the poor, instead of on weapons. How many sweaters and blankets could we make for the cost of just one fighter jet?
