A New Project

I've been knitting away on the Calash scarf for a while now. While it's going fine, I like to have a few projects going at one time so I can switch things out at the tedious moments. 

So, when I saw this tweet the other day:

I was instantly curious.

(I had read that green was the color for abortion rights. I was curious about the pattern.)

I found the pattern page here. And the design looks doable.

I went through my stash in search of green yarn. I don't have exactly the right shade, but I have quite a bit of green. I narrowed it down to these choices: 

When I took the picture, I was thinking I'd use the yarn on the top. The yarn on the left bottom is the yarn I used for niece's tank top. But the more I look at it, the more I like the one on the bottom right. 

I mean, I could swatch all three and see which one works up the best. 

It's time to start a bunch of projects. This way, when I get busy again, I'll have things to work on. The starting is what takes the most mental energy. (The finishing takes a bit, too, but not nearly as much as the starting.) 

Of course, I'm just ignoring what I'll do with the bandana after I finish it. It's not like it has a home. But I'll worry about that later.

  1. It's a cute pattern, and a great cause. You'll find a good home for it! I like the green from your niece's top. I didn't know green scarves were for abortion rights.

    1. I was surprised when I heard about the green, too. I figured it would be a good heads up for those that did not know.

  4. I didn't know about the color green. I went on Ravelry and checked this designer out. Knitting only. I don't crochet in the hot months but I am intrigued if there are any crochet designers of similar mind out there. There must be.

    1. I think this would be easier in crochet. I'm sure someone will come up with something before too long.

  6. The history of the green wave is interesting, thanks for the link. I like the two greens on the bottom myself. Happy knitting.

    1. That's the one I decided to start with. I may make all of them at some point. We'll see how things go.

  11. I was thinking the yarn on the bottom right or left seems right and it's for a good cause. It looks like it would be a great neck warmer when it gets cold.
