Did you see that The Red Scarf Project expects to receive 6500 scarves this year! Whoot! (I'll stop saying that soon, I promise. I'm not quite done with it yet.) I am thrilled! RSP is near and dear to my heart. Hugs to all the RSP knitters/crocheters and all the recipients. I am hoping to hear from the folks who get my scarves. I want to know who they are and what they are studying. Is it wrong to want an anonymous gift to become personal? Maybe I am too curious.
You may have heard about the 4500 pairs of Latvian mittens knit for NATO Summit guests in Riga. Amazing, beautiful, inspirational knitting. Each guest will get a pair knit in a traditional pattern made by one of hundreds of Latvian knitters.
So, I have ordered by copy of Latvian Mittens by Lizbeth Upitis. Unfortunately, I did not plan this very well. I have about three weeks before my book arrives. :-/ Until then, I will watch and be inspired.
