red ‘n’ purple raglan tee

May 9, 2009

In an attempt to use up all of my yarn stash before buying anything new, I made this four skein project with some cheapie yarn (Bernat Satin Sport), but it turned out so well that I think I’ll have to make another with some splurge yarn. It was an easy knit — no pattern was used. Just did a basic top down raglan with k1, p1 ribbed edge at neckline and sleeves, decreased around the waist for shaping, and put a wide ribbed band at the bottom. I let my limited amount of yarn dictate the color block pattern. Pics show it unblocked because I never have the patience to wait for blocking before snapping pics. ­čÖé

fasting for Darfur — please join!

May 6, 2009

I’ve decided to join Mia Farrow in her fast for Darfur, in an attempt to bring much needed publicity to the genocide in Sudan. ┬áVisit this link to join in the fight! You can choose a water only fast or the “refugee rations” fast which mirrors the tiny amount of food alotted to refugees on a daily basis.

I’m participating for four days (refugee rations), but you can participate for as little as one.

Thanks!
