You see... I have been admiring a certain shawl that our LYS, Fibers, has on display. It is a pattern designed by Ms. Cultured Pearl that calls for lots of colorful leftover sock yarn.
I have decided to make my own, since we will have to send Betsy's work back to her soon... now, I picture this project much as making a quilt (which I have had some experience with), and will work on it here and there, sometimes more than others, and in between projects that clamor, and someday will have my own, special version which I think will look particularly stylish with jeans.
So why do I need help? Because, in the tradition of memory quilters everywhere, I would like this memory shawl to contain bits of lots of my fellow knitters, and am asking for you to send me leftover sock yarns in amounts from as little as 12 yards to as much as 100 yards, providing me with a wide palette of yarns representing knitters I know and love. In return, I will send each of my special, sock yarn-providing angels their very own pocket angel.
Leave me a comment or email me at burrobird AT gmail DOT com.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
