Thanks to Carol-Jeanne who alerted me that SO Maine had chosen their colours for the 2015 Games.
SO Maine’s colours are Burgundy, Carrot, and Paddy Green.
I’m liking this colour combination – well, maybe the orange isn’t bright enough for me, but it still looks good together.
Here’s the updated scarf colour scarves. Now that we have a few completed items, it’s looking colourful, isn’t it? Oh, and I decided that our group should have a featured pattern for the scarves and items, so that it’ll be easy to spot them in group photos. This year, I thought the Chevron pattern (or zig-zags or waves) would be our featured pattern, so you’ll see that in three photos below.
Now it’s got me thinking maybe I should check all the other state program websites, in case they too decided to continue with the Scarf Project and announced colours. I had stopped checking and asking at the end of summer, because that would leave only three months for the crafters to meet the numbers, what with the end-of-year holidays and gift-crafting now gearing up. Anyway, if there are any more states joining in, we’ll do the best we can.
Come on over and join us. The more hands we have making scarves, the sooner the state programs will reach their numbers. Details and more information on the 2015 Scarf Project can be found here. We also have a Facebook (Knit and Crochet for a Cause) and Ravelry (Special Olympics Scarf Project) page, where you can join in the conversation with other crafters. See you there!
