It will be so nice to get these done ahead of time this year. I stayed up all night to get one done for 2010 because I didn't think to look for the info until the regular Olympics were getting ready to start. Thanks for posting now!

What a cute little guy! Wish him luck for me in the Special Olympics in May! I'm sure he'll have a great time. Thanks for helping make scarves.

This sounds wonderful! I have two skeins of RHSS white in my stash box, so I'll just have to pick up some Cherry Red. :)

I made two of the red & grey scarves in February for the Special Olympics! But, I think I can manage another one...in memory of my brother-in-law, Bill, who passed away on Saturday, April 10. He loved participating in the Special Olympics in Wisconsin.

So sorry for your loss. What a wonderful thought to make one and donate it in your brother-in-law's memory.

We'll make it work. I'm sure someone will enjoy a little wider scarf. Thanks for helping make scarves!
