The Red Scarf Program

I'm working my way through my Sibella and it's been a nice project to knit.  There will be minimal seaming and once I knit the neck, I will be done! You knit the body in the round and then knit the sleeves separately and knit them to the body at the start of the yoke:



This Quince and Co. Chickadee yarn has been great to work with; I love their colors and the quality of this yarn is first rate - no knots or splitting.

I hope to have this done in the next week and will post a picture here.  In the meantime, I am planning on knitting a scarf  for the Foster Care to Success College Fund Red Scarf project.  This is an organization that helps foster children who have aged out of the foster system and are pretty much on their own.  They provide emotional and financial support for those kids that are now enrolled in college  and who need help with everything from money for textbooks, to paying for clothing, food and emergency car repairs.  The Red Scarf project is a popular program and over the years many knitters have knit scarves in varying shades of red to show their support for these kids as well as sending along a note of encouragement as well as donating to the Fund.  All scarves have to be finished and delivered by December 1st and I am hoping to make two.  Here is the yarn I am using for the first one, in a burgundy shade:


The Red Scarf project has links to a number of quick and easy scarf projects and I chose Palindrome, a reversible cable scarf.


Couldn't resist including this picture of some of our tomatoes!  They are everywhere and we are making salsa, pasta sauce, crostini, salads, etc.


Enjoy the week and check out what others are working on over at Tami's blog.


  1. That's an interesting project! Love the colour of the scarf, the pattern too and your tomatoes look really tasty! :-) Ours are gone now --> it's too cold. Have a good week! Greetings from Germany.

  2. I love the idea of the Red Scarf Project, and those tomatoes look delicious! I would try and grow some myself, but the deer tend to eat them before they get very far along...
