The Atheist Scarf

Executive Director of Camp Quest, Amanda Metskas, created this lovely looking scarf:

Don’t *you* wish you had knitting skills now?

I wonder what special powers an atheist scarf would have…

    Looks like she’s still knitting it.

    Talented, cute, an atheist AND a hero. The whole package.

  • Its supernatural power would be to replace missing red “A”s in signs.

  • Ubi Dubium

    I do have knitting skills. And she is definitely still knitting it. All those dangly threads should be gone by the time she is done. I wonder if she will add fringe? It’s kind of traditional, but I would not want people to associate “Atheist” with “fringe”.

  • It keeps your neck warm. That’s the only power any decent atheist would ascribe to a scarf. Although I guess plenty of people will identify her as an adulteress, so I guess her own scarf has the power to bear false witness against her.

  • I hope there’s a pattern when she’s done! 🙂

  • Darwin’s Dagger beats anything I could say!

    Hey, do you suppose Palin will want that scarf for her daughter? She did say she would hold Bristol up as an example of what not to do.

  • I too have knitting skills, and this would be a pretty cool scarf to make. I am considering doing a “scarlet A” sweater instead, though.

  • Meg

    Lovely! I hope she’ll share the pattern on Ravelry.

  • oh, want!

    I have knitterly skills. I am going to make me one of those.

  • Give me a pattern now!!! 😀

  • The scarf is indeed unfinished in the picture, but it’s done now. I’m finishing writing up the pattern, and taking a few more photos. You’ll all have the pattern soon.
