I'm almost to the end of the first ball (of two) of the yarn I'm NOT enjoying, but it sure does look cool. The tension is so different between the two yarns; I constantly have to pull the Simply Soft, which slides easily and is nice to work with. The Portofino, on the other hand, constantly pulls against itself, and I'm having to be very careful that I'm knitting with the YARN and not the LOOP. I'll never use it again, but it sure does look cool in this scarf.
I've found the Susan G. Komen Tulsa Affiliate, and last year they had an auction in September to kick off the Race for the Cure (TM) but I haven't emailed them yet. I'd like to donate this scarf for the fundraiser, but we'll see. I know there's a place in Colorado and one in Southern California that are taking scarves specifically, so that's another option.
I just have to finish the dang thing first.
