Vicki's Pink Scarf Project

Hello my dear friends,

I would like to bring a project to your attention by fellow blogger Vicki from 2 Bags Full, who by the way makes the most amazing woolen nests I have ever seen.

Vicki has started a year long project called 'The Pink Scarf Project'. To put it in a nutshell, it is about breast cancer and showing someone that you care about them and send them your support even though you don't know them.

The way you can do this is to either buy or make a pink scarf and send it to a special address Vicki has set up for this project. This is a year long project and in one year the scarves will then be given to ladies that are affected by breast cancer.

Vicki is even creating a pink nest especially for this cause and she has also made a beautiful wrap that you could win at the end of the year if you take part in the project and enter her giveaway.

I personally haven't been effected by breast cancer nor do I know anybody and I am very grateful for that. My Mom passed away and she had cancer and that's why I am going to take part in this project. I just think that it is such a tiny thing you could do for somebody that is unwell or has been.

So my dear friends grab your knitting needles, crochet hooks or what ever you would like to use or choose and start to make a pink scarf. It doesn't have to be fancy or bold but  you will put a little smile on someones face even if it is only for a short moment but it makes all the difference.

Please, visit Vicki's blog and read her post about her amazing project.
Just think ... if we all were to make just one scarf there would be so many ladies wearing pink out there that would know that somebody cares.
I hope you are all well and life is treating you kind my dear friends,
Have a peaceful Sunday,
Karen B.


  1. Karen - this is so touching that it has brought tears to MY eyes. Thank you for doing this for me - for sharing this project with your MANY devoted readers and followers. You are so right - if we each just donate one scarf -- can you imagine the lives that will be touched -- one scarf -- that is all. I am so blessed to have blogging friends who are kind enough to want to involve themselves with my projects - but then its no surprise really - because the blogging world is FULL of amazing and wonderful people like you,

    Thank you thank you -- from the bottom of my heart~


  2. Wonderful project, isn't it? I am in as well, I am in France at the moment, I have the wool, but I forgot to take the knitting needles with me, tehehehe. Going shopping on Wednesday though, and then I can start. This is such a good thing to do.
