I am so excited!

Prudence Mapstone started a project on Ravelry called the "Pink Project", where you send in your scrumbles, and she will sew them together into a masterpiece to be sold to benefit Breast Cancer research. If you are on Ravelry check out her "Pink Project" group.

Here is part of her description from Ravelry:

"a little while ago Elaine, a good friend from the Knitters Guild in Sydney, sent me a few lovely pink ‘scrumbles’ that she had made for a project that didn’t go ahead. She was wondering what else could be done with them, and so now we have decided to use them to start off a fundraiser for breast cancer research.

Remembering how much fun I had when I was piecing together all the patches and motifs contributed for the ‘coat of many Scrumbles’ project (using hundreds of scrumbles contributed by members of the International Freeform Crochet Guild), I am again volunteering to join everything together for another group project - this time to create a range of things like handbags, scarves, cushions or whatever, which we will eventually auction off (later this year) to raise money for cancer research"

Reason I am so excited? Prudence used my Vertigo (Pink and Fuchsia) yarns in her scrumbles!

They are phenomenal. Following are some of her scrumbles.

Or in Prudence's flickr album HERE.

Off to work now, I am all inspired (and awe-inspired)! :D
