2011 Special Olympics Scarf Project

Recommended Posts

I will leave the link, because all the information is there.

 

http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/

 

I encourage all of you to head on over and take some time to make one or two (or three or ten!) scarves. If your state has all their scarves or the deadline has passed, consider making scarves for another state.

 

The project is about unity.

I think the deadline is over on this. I clicked on the info and it said to be sent no later than Dec. 31. I am still interested in making if they do it again.

The deadlines are different for different states. I'm donating to Wisconsin, since I live here, and the deadline is January 14th.

Yup - do check different states, especially if your state's deadline has passed. I live in Illinois. That deadline is January 18th, but there are several deadlines out into February for lots of states. I clicked on their blog to see a listing in a table (rather than having to go through each state).

I finished my four scarves (to Mississippi) and have them ready to mail tomorrow. Now on to the next project--rectangles for HAP.

I have 3 done and working on a 4th. I think I'll finish 6 for Illinois, then pick the next state and do 4 or 5 for them and continue until I run out of states :P

Not sure I can get any done this time around. Wish I knew about it sooner. :(

Maybe I could pull a rabbit out of my hat...maybe!

 

When will we know the colors for 2012? Could definitely plan that one. :)

Great Job Braxxi!!

 

I broke down and bought 2 skeins of each color. Looks like I'll be making scarves! :)

 

Plan on sending a couple to Arizona and a couple to Washington.

ohhhh I reallike the pattern on that first one (the rounded edge one) - is it a pattern you can share?

 

I personally am doing the easiest of the easy so I can knock them out fast - crocheting the colors together using a size P hook and double crochet all the way down. Nothing fancy - but they get done fast.

I didn't think to right down the pattern as I was making it...:(...sorry.

I bought a skein of each color and will get to work on them this weekend. My state isn't participating (sadly) and I missed the deadline for Kansas so I think I will be sending my work to Texas. That way it's somewhat local. I do want to look into why Oklahoma isn't participating though.

I felt the same way,when I looked and my home state of NY wasn't listed

I wondered why

Half finished with my first scarf. I have realized that I need to get some non girly scarf patterns in my resources, lol.

AN UPDATE:

 

It seems the website has updated each state's page with information about how many scarves are left for each state. Now, not all of them show the number so that leads me to believe that the state has already reached quota or is not in danger of not reaching quota.

 

The states I would like to present are those with RED text stating how many scarves they have. These state deadlines are fast approaching and they are no where near deadline.

 

My state, Illinois, needs 900 scarves and has only received 101 to date.

 

Louisiana needs 1400 scarves and has only received 59 so far :(

 

There are a lot of states on the list with this problem - so I ask that if your state deadline has passed, your state is not participating OR your state has already achieved their goal - please consider finding another state that is in need of scarves.

 

I think I'm going to send 5 or 6 to IL (already done) and make a few more for each state in need - or at least as many as I can make :)

Thanks Cris. I'll take a better look at the list to decide where to send mine since OK isn't participating.

 

That would be so nice of you (and it surprises me OK isn't participating). I wonder if they'll take any surplus and apply it to the states in need.
