Okay, I've finally done this!.....this is my 1 metre crochet section of a 7 mile pink peace scarf.
I wanted to do this, but I hit a fair amount of resistance in my self. I think it may have been the pink and the long list of other things which I want to make!. Although once I realized it would be okay, and not breaking any rules (whose rules anyway!) to put a colourful granny square in the middle, I was off.
and once totally immersed in the pink, I really quite enjoyed it, especially next to all the other colours. I'll be sorry to see it go. But it's off for a good cause.

This project is the brain child of Jaine and you can read about the beginning of this project here on her blog Beeswax and broomsticks.
In the end it was my commitment to doing this that carried me through. This really is the last call.
Editied to add: I forgot to say that the after the event the scarf pieces will stitched together and made into around 2000 blankets, which will be sent to well needed places. Now isn't that a thing!

I will be away from my patch for the next little while.
