In theory, it's all about the fiber – knitting, crocheting, sewing, and spinning – but really, it's all about my life.

A Request for Some Friends

So, you guys have heard me mention our friends Steve and Mindy, right?  Well, I may not have mentioned it, but one of their two fabulous kids happens to have special needs.  So, Steve posted the other day about the Special Olympics World Winter Games Scarf Project.  They are working with Coats and Clark to try to collect enough scarves in the official Special Olympics colors so that every athlete will have one.  The only rule is that the scarves (either knit or crochet – your call) need to be done in Red Heart Super Saver in delft blue (885) and white (311). They have provided free knit and crochet versions, but you can make them in any pattern you would like.

The scarves need to be sent to the Special Olympics by January 15th, 2009 – the address and other information are at the link above.

So, I know I’ll be picking up some yarn to make some scarves.  Who’s with me?

    Hmmm…I wanna say the Dino-hat I just finished was Delft Blue Red Heart. I’ve got leftover–all I’d have to do is buy white.

    I picked up the yarn today – and I am putting the information in the newsletter for MOPS that I am working on. I hope to get the ladies in on this, maybe even a knit-nite at my house to work on them.

    Thanks for letting us know about this! Great thing for great people! :)
