Charity Knitting

Thanks for all the nice comments about the Ribbon Trim Cardigan and the welcome back wishes. It's nice to be blogging regularly again!

I realized in the 5 or 6 years that I have been knitting that I have never knit anything for charity. When a co-worker asked me to knit some stuff for her to sell to raise money for her breast cancer walk in May, I thought it would be a good time to make something for a good cause. So far I have completed two cute little projects.

Pattern: I didn't follow a specific pattern, but it is loosely based on the schematic and decrease instructions from Kim's Hats in Last Minute Knitted Gifts.
Yarn: Leftovers (whoo hoo) of Knit Picks Swish Worsted.

Pattern: iPod cozy [Ravelry Link] [Web Link]
Yarn: Leftovers (whoo hoo again!) of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Fern and Winter Night.
Mods: None - I used size 10 needles and knit this as written. Tossed in with Bill's laundry and it felted very nicely. It fits an iPhone perfectly to size.

What else is in the WIP pile? I started Wicked recently but have not worked on it much. I also started Henley Perfected and am of couse following Jatta's modifications and making it into a cardigan. I am about 2/3 of the way through the back. My only gripe so far is that the folded hem is really curling a lot. Hope blocking solves this.

That's all I've got for now, but I hope to finish up some more litle projects in the WIP pile soon.
