Wavy Scarf

The scarf is finally finished! I'd hoped to have it done over the weekend but Tuesday works too. Now let's hope I can knock out a hat in a day...
Here's the scarf pre-blocking and almost finished.
And here it is soaking in the sink of the guest bathroom. It has since been spun out in the washer and is blocking on the floor in my room but I forgot to take pictures. It turned out to be quite a long scarf (probably about 6 feet long) and I like how the colors blended together. The hat has been started but not much work was done on it because...

I came home today and found 4(!) more packages waiting for the Eastern European and Russian Orphanages Project. So I spent today photographing and packing those items away. I was hoping to use a medium sized suitcase but I ended up pulling out the biggest one I had just to fit the donations inside.
That's all my towels, undergarments, socks, a raincoat, and half my shirts plus two large space bags filled to the brim with donated items. Oh, and a roll of toilet paper. Because that's a commodity in Eastern Europe. Seriously. I still have a few things to pack but most everything else I'm going to try and fit into my carry on. Which includes a travel sized hair dryer and all my toiletries. I'm nothing if not adventurous.
