Special Olympics Scarf Project 2013 Update

It’s been slow so far, and as is usually the case, there’ll probably be an avalanche of scarves sent in towards the last week before the deadlines.  The holiday season has caught up with us, and there’s other priorities and projects going on.  There’s actually been a day or two that I haven’t picked up yarn to work on projects!  Imagine that!  A day without playing with yarn!  That’s awful, isn’t it?

  1. Time for me to get to work, making scarves for Ohio and reaching out to Ohio State alums in my area (Pittsburgh) to join the fun. I’d planned to do this sooner, but an intestinal virus changed my plans for the weeks up to Christmas.

    • I have to get to work on mine as well. Two unexpected trips threw me off my schedule so now I have to get cracking. Thanks for your participation in the project. Any number will help towards the goal.
