Warm Hats, Warm Hearts

free malabrigo

I've found a use for the free skein of gorgeous Malabrigo that I received from Happy Knits at Squam: a scarf for Warm Hats, Warm Hearts.

Beaded Rib Scarf RS
Pattern: Beaded Rib Scarf, by Jacqueline Fee
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted, color #123 Rhodesian
Needle: US7

I'm going back to my knitting roots with this project. It's in Jacqueline Fee's The Sweater Workshop, which is the book I used to teach myself to knit. I chose this pattern because it can work equally well for either a man or a woman—I don't know who will end up receiving the scarf. Another reason: the stitch pattern looks equally good on both sides.

Warm Hats, Warm Hearts is collecting handknits to send to the people of Vermont and New York who lost so much during Hurricane Irene. To contribute, look for the group on Ravelry or on Facebook, or see the flyer below.

I love the color. I seem to be going through all my older books also this year. It seems I was very inspired by them at one time. I joined the ravelry group and just need the info for mailing. (^_^)
