I’m hoping to finish one more charity scarf before 2015 draws to a close. This one is for the Seaman’s Church Institute which provides care packages to mariners.  Unlike most charity projects, they prefer wool since that will still keep someone warm even if it gets wet.

Since most mariners are men, they asked that the scarves be in non-feminine colors.  I was limited when I picked up this yarn, so had to buy black (which is photographing as grey).  They also provide the patterns they would like to have used.  This is a sort of basket weave look, which does give the solid color some visual interest.

We took a trip out to visit some relatives and I brought this along for the car ride.  It was all highway driving so I did not miss much scenery by looking down at the yarn and hook.
