The Plan

Update 2017. While we hoped we could revive this project it has not happened. If anyone is interested in taking over, please leave a comment.

Knit lots of hats and scarves for patients and survivors or breast and ovarian cancers to be donated to the Komen Foundation for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate. We fully support monetary fund raising efforts for the cure. But we also want to do something which will go directly to those who need to know there are people rooting for their health and survival. All skill levels are welcome!

Please join us! The 2011 project ends Sept. 15th.

Switching needles

As I was thinking about a pattern to work on, I realized that we have not done anything really lacey or delicate. So, I knitted a garter stitch using two different size needles: a No. 4 / 3.5mm and a No 12 / 8mm. This size variation allowed for some open and airy needlework.

You will need to select a larger needle from your stash. The larger needle should be approx 3 times larger than the needle you are currently using.

Also, the boarder should be knitted with the needle you have been using all along, but after the first four stitches, switch to the larger needle and knit, then switch back to the smaller needle for the boarder.

I switched the needles on each row.
