I’m making some progress on my cowl — see?
I started at the top of the cowl, and I’m knitting down to the bottom, increasing as I go to widen it to fit over the shoulders:
This yarn is just a dream to knit. So soft, so light . . .
Some of you might have figured out that if you enlarge one of my Coraline photos in yesterday’s blog post, you’ll find the password to enter at the Coraline site and view one of the short videos there. (Yeah, I was trying to be subtle and not point it out.) Extra points to anyone who can identify the sweater being worn in that video.
And through a trackback, I found this blog entry, which links to other bloggers who have received boxes from the Coraline team. If you read these entries, you’ll find other passwords so you can view other videos.
Did I mention how extremely honored and flattered I am to have been chosen to receive the knitting box?
With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, I’m thinking about what I can do to help others less fortunate. Project Linus, non-profit organization that makes blankets for severely abused and ill children, can always use donations of money, materials, and blankets. If you have something to donate, check out the website — the FAQs have information on exactly what they can use and how to donate. I made a monetary donation today as my Thanksgiving gift.
