It’s snowing here. Football will be on television later today. I’m busy knitting. Life is good . . . cold, but good.
The Red Bull Crashed Ice event has been going on since Thursday. The finals are tonight. I snapped another photo of the downhill course, lit in blue in the pre-dawn hours of yesterday morning.
The 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Super Scarf Project deadline has come and gone. I received confirmation that scarf #45 and #46 have arrived in Indy. Yea! I checked the Super Scarf website just now and the total has gone up since the last time I looked. They show a total of 12, 94 scarves! Wow! Not only that, but there is a very inspirational video of a woman who crocheted 250 scarves! I’ve watched it three times already. Check the link for yourself and have a look.
Only 22 days left before the Super Bowl!!!!!!
So, what’s left to do?
As I completed each scarf, I saved whatever yarn was left, be it more or less. I wound the remainders of my purchased skeins into balls and stowed them away to use as I needed. I used some of the leftovers for fringes and some for the applique work that I did. It all seemed to work out rather economically, actually.
After knitting 46 Super Scarves, I took all the little balls of yarn, put them in a glass bowl and used it as a holiday decoration. It got topped with a little Indianapolis Colts’ mascot ornament that Indybro gave me.
It may be a bit difficult to see, but the glass bowl is full and there is yarn behind the little ornament.
But Christmas is over and I decided to devise a knitting project to use up the remaining blue and white yarn. I am getting to the end . . . of the yarn and the project.
I decided to knit a baby item to donate to a church collection happening this weekend at the church GN and I attend. I will post a photo of the project when it’s completed and it may remind some of you of . . . a friend I made last September.
