What'cha Working on Wednesday? ~Yarn Artists Needed~

.
Knitting...I've been knitting for Special Olympics...

What is the Scarf Project?Handmade scarves donated as a result of the 2011 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project will be a symbol of unity, support, compassion and empowerment, as the Special Olympics athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and supporters wear them with pride in knowing they have become part of the Special Olympics family.

The scarves must be of these specific colors but can be knit or crochet with any pattern.
We have about 30 students from our school district that compete at the State Level Winter Games.

My friends, Carol, Karren, and I have been knitting and crocheting to donate scarves to our state organization. Karren's cat is proud to model one of her creations.


Check out the website for your state's dates and deadlines.


Do you care to join me in kniting or crocheting for Special Olympics?
Many states have a long ways to go before their needs are met.

Take care,
~Natalie

Those scarves are beautiful! I've been working on an iPad case. Ugh. Wish me luck that it gets finished before I get fed up.

I really need to learn HOW to knit! This is beautiful! I think the project is a worthy one and one that crafters should engage in!
