Free Love Scarf

The new issue of knitty is on-line and included an article called "7 Knits for 7 Flicks". This involves two of my favorite pastimes, so I took a gander. One of Ms. Pepper's ideas was watching "Bob & Ted & Carol & Alice" and making a 'Free Love Scarf'. The idea is to have everyone knit a few rows from leftover yarn. The author was thinking of just having one scarf at the end of the evening. I was thinking it would be fun to have everyone come with a few different sized needles, some yarn, a sense of humor and willingness to share the love of knitting on each person's scarf. Everyone would have a scarf at the end of the evening. You wouldn't have to watch "B&T&C&A", but that would be chessy goodness.

***Congrats to Karen and 'Random' of "The Naked Ovary". They met their daughter Maya today in China!

That sounds like a great idea - I wish I knew how to knit.

I'm soooo happy for Karen & Random guy!

Cool! I can't wait to read the article! BTW, Blogger won't let me sign in since switching to Beta (hence the anonymous comments) therefore I can't leave a comment on Beth's blog because she doesn't take anonymous comments. Please tell her that I enjoy reading her blog. Thanks - Stephanie @ forks and chopsticks

I would insist that they watch that movie and fugettabout the scarf. You all should knit condom cozies or something (in keeping with the movie theme).

Is that a picture of your own personal yarn stash up there? If so, you rock and I am jealous! :-)

Very cool idea to knit and watch movies. I would recommend knitting to a movie that maybe you've seen once or twice though.
