Valentine knitting

So I’m a little out of date with these posts — Valentine’s Day?! But better late than never.

I knit these scarves for Project #6 on the Craft Hope site. This project is collecting red knitted scarves for young people in foster care going off to college. I loved this idea, so I raided my stash for red and cast on right away, knitting up three scarves in a matter of days, in three different rosy shades.

I love the way these turned out. I tried their lovely recommended pattern, the star stitch scarf donated by Vickie Powell, but in the end I was more comfortable with this knit1/purl1 rib stitch. I cast on 30 stitches and knit for 5 feet or so. It created such a great, soft, lofty fabric for each scarf. Like a big hug. It was such a quiet, happy, restful project. With a little love in each stitch.
