  1. I’d like to sign my class up to participate. I’m a special education teacher from NJ. For the past two years my class has taken a field trip to events held near us. Last year we made scarves and handed them out to athletes. I don’t see NJ listed.iI’ love for some help in how I sign up and inform someone of our colors and totals made. Thanks

    • Hi Jenn,
      About your colours and totals made – Did you make scarves for this year, or for last year?
      SONJ chose not to participate this year, due to other commitments they had.
      It is up to the state program to decide whether they want to participate in the project or not. I will be in touch with them again to find out if they want to continue the project. If they choose to participate, then I will be posting about the colours that they have selected for the scarves, and other information.
      Thanks for your support.

      • Thanks for you response. We made them last year but have it made them this year. It was just one thing special I had my class do. I’d still like to if possible. We don’t make many but he few we do are made with a lot of heart.

        • You will surely have a chance to participate again this year (for 2015 games), if SONJ decides to pick up the project again. If not, then you can consider making scarves for another participating state. So far for 2015, SO Arkansas and SO Tennessee have already chosen their colour. Details are up on the 2015 SO page. Thanks.

  2. I just now found you. I can’t seem to find your Face book page. I am an internet knit wit. Please send me more information. For now I just reblog and share over the social medias.

    • Hello. The Facebook page for the Scarf Project is part of the group ‘Knit and Crochet for a Cause’. There is a link on the right side bar that will take you to that page.
      Thanks very much for your support.

  3. Hello,

    I make scarfs using a loom would that be ok? I am 52 and I am on disability so I started to loom so far I made a baby blanket and I am making scraf for my daughters.

    Been home on oxygen 24/7 is not easy. I go out but I spend a lot of time at home.

    This would help me not be so depress about my situation. I would to help if looming is ok. It does not matter which state. I would love to help my state Maryland but I do not see it on the list.

    Look forward to hear from you.

    Thank you,
    Mirtha Stadlet
