Yes … the Special Olympics 2015 Scarf Project has started!
I’m excited for this, and for the first time, optimistic that we will meet the state program goals for the items they requested. With the previous years, I knew that we would meet the goals for two or three state programs, and certainly not for those with the large amounts requested.
But this year is different. Seven – yes, seven! – state programs have announced their colours early! Oh, it is so good to get started on these … before the summer holidays start … the new school year begins … the crafting for Christmas gifts … then the holiday chaos starts … and before you know it, the new year has started, and the deadlines are upon us. At least, with these seven – and maybe more will announce colours before the summer starts – we can work on these all year long. If others announce their colours later in the year, we’ll have enough time to work on those.
So, if you’re in between projects, or want to make something quick, or need a portable project to take with you … here’s one that’s no stress. Knit or crochet a scarf or headband for a Special Athlete.
Join us over on Facebook or Ravelry, and post your pictures. It’ll be fun.
