Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 6, Week 3

Welcome to the third week of the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 6! This week I’m knitting up the Destination Scarf in our new Newsprint color of Boutique Sassy Fabric.

destination_scarfI’m making the scarf for my grandmother’s upcoming birthday. (Yes, all the birthdays in my family happen around the same time!) She met my grandfather when he worked for a newspaper and she worked in an advertising office. They also traveled quite a bit when they were young, so I thought that this newspaper-themed print with city names on it would be perfect.

Please share what you’re working on in the comments on our blog posts or on our social media channels: Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter. Tag your social media posts with #WNSC6 to share them with the group. I’d love to see what you’re working on!

Each week we’ll select one winner of a $150 Red Heart Prize Package. To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this blog post.

Congratulations to Lana S., who won last week’s giveaway!
