Paws to Remember

Here's another great lace pattern written by Evelyn Clark for Fiber Trends!

From the first paragraph of the pattern description: "Celebrate the canines who have accompanied you on your life's journey with this garter stitch lace scarf. Simple chevrons symbolize the river of life inside the border of paw prints." I thought it an appropriate item to make to be one of the auction items at this year's local Italian Greyhound Rescue Reunion & Fundraiser.

I did this with about three and a half skeins of Elsebeth Lavold "Silky Wool" on size 7 Addi lace needles. The finished scarf measures about 10 inches wide and a whopping 9 feet long! The scarf in the picture on the pattern was 29 repeats of the chevron pattern. I did 40!

I hope your auction raises lots of money because this is truly beautiful.

I soooo don't do lace, but your project is simply stunning. Great technique and a fantastic choice of colour. Hope it raises lots for your charity.

You are such a great guy Aaron. Beautiful job sir. By the way, here at school I am next door to a Greyhound Racing Track. You should drive down and we will can sneak them all out. Let's do it, OK?

All I can say is wow. Beautiful job executed in the perfect color. Good luck with a very worth while fund raiser. (My sister used to work at a dog track in Florida and said the conditions were aweful for the dogs. When she couldn't stand working there any more she stole a dog that was about to be put down and left the state!!!) She knits with balls too. LOL

Thanks guys! It fetched $70 in our auction. Not bad. Overall we rasied a bit over $1600 for Italian Greyhound Rescue. About the cost of one broken leg which we see most frequently with the foster dogs!

Wonderful scarf. Wonderful cause. I'm especially grateful for your commitment to such a great charity. My partner and I are soon approaching the one year anniversary of losing our beloved greyhound. We adopted from a rescue group and he shared our lives for about 12 years. We still aren't really used to not having him with us. So keep up the good work.
