Nikko’s Appeal: The Red Scarf Project


Well, the Red Scarf Project has taken on a life of its own here at Casa Stro! Nikko has embraced it as “his cause” for his Homeschool Service Project. He has written an appeal to you to help him reach his goal of 100 scarves by January 2008. Will you help?

FO: The Good Guest!

Now we just need a little person to wear it! The dress for my daughter is done, at last, with just enough yarn left over for a matching hat.

The adoption is coming along swimmingly, and I hope to report ETAs soon!

Girl Knitting!!!

As discussed in my previous post, we’re adopting! And, as discussed, I am over the moon at the thought of finally knitting for a girl! I have loved knitting for my son, but until the Yarn Girls book
came out, there was a dearth of cute patterns for boys….ugh! So now, I am working on the front of The Good Guest from the abovementioned Yarn Girls book. I subbed the yarn for my very favorite yarn of all time, Rowan’s Calmer. Don’cha love it?? And, even though I have exactly a hundred and eleventy-six moving-related things I ought to be doing, somehow I am only finding time to “girl knit”…..hmm…. (In all fairness to the boys, I am designing a matching duo of brother vests…more on that later….)
