Shades of Pink

Nancy at Basketmaster's Weaving blog is putting together a Think Pink Raffle. In honor of my friend Lesbia, who after 17 surgeries and 5 long years is a breast cancer survivor, I'm donating a scarf I'm naming "Shades of Pink". I started it this week with a mixture of yarns, textures and colors. I did the same thing with this scarf that I did with the Midnight Shawl, no rhythm or reason to the yarn just the color of pink. I'm finding that I really enjoy these type of projects, the fly by my seat, mix & match yarn choices. I think that I will be doing a lot more of this type of project on my RH since, I have to plan for the Structo and inkle, this will be the whimsical weaving loom. Close up of the yarns, there is LB Suede, Caron Simply Soft, Wool Blend (gifted to me) ribbon yarn with fuzzy sides, eyelash yarn and some nubby stuff I can't even remember when I got it, but it's working out and I'm really loving it.
I'll keep you guys updated as to when the raffle will take place so you can try your luck and help support a great cause.

That's great news about your friend! Yay!

I love projects like this too...random, relaxed, stash busting, and fun...especially when they turn out so well. I love it!

I wove a pink scarf last year and it turned out to be a kick off for a drawing I had to promote breast cancer awareness and encourage readers to get their mamograms.

Yes, agreed; a no rules project is a real pleasure-you have a great scarf in the making!

I'm sure your pretty pink scarf will be appreciated. It's very pretty. Light and lively.

That is so wonderful about your friend. I have lost one sister-n-law to breast cancer and I have one more that has it and just finished all her treatments and so far is doing well. If I'm lucky enough to win it will be going to her!
