I dont know if anyone has heard about this, but i think its a good cause and just wanted to spread the word. The special olympics is looking for crafty people to make scarves for the special olympics next year. They only want you to use two specific colors, and the specific yarn is Red Heart, and they want the scarf to fit certain measurements, but other than that, they want people to be creative with the designs. My mom and i are making some for Michigan. The websife for the cause is scarvesforspecialolympics.org. you can find all the information about how many each state needs and where to send them. Also the exact measurements for the scarves. Anyways just thought i'd tell everyone about it incase you're interested!!
The 2012 Special Olympics Scarf Project, sponsored by Red Heart yarn co., is underway and I designed this scarf specifically for this project. Go to the Special Olympics Scarf Project website to find out more, and to see where in your state you can send a completed scarf or two or twenty!
