Knit Picks Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye Yarn

Hi everyone!

I purchased some Knit Picks Hawthorne Kettle Dye yarn in mid-August. I made an unboxing/review video at the time, but then life got busy and I wasn't able to upload the video until now. However, by then I had completed what I made with the yarn. Watch the video below to see the yarn and what I made. 😃

Two Pink Scarves

This Saturday, there will be a 5K walk/race by the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund in my town. As part of the event, the organizers requested pink scarves to be knitted, crocheted, or woven for walkers/racers who are breast cancer survivors. These are the two I made for them.

I started the pink and white one thinking I would do the interesting knot from the All Wrapped Up Infinity Scarf. The pink section is the pattern from the Pound of Love Hooded Baby Blanket. The white section is a granny square pattern from Heather's Crochet Blog. Unfortunately, I made the two sections too wide so the knot didn't work well. I just seamed the two together to make a HUGE infinity scarf. You have to wrap it around three times, but it still works well as a scarf.

The dark pink one is a fan or shell pattern that I haven't written up yet.

This brings my lifetime donation total to 689 items.
