2016 Special Olympics Scarf Project Update

Now that summer is winding down, thoughts turn more and more to the cold winds and the cold weather items that we can all start working on, right?  If you’re looking for a quick project to start you on your cold weather knitting and crocheting, check out the Special Olympics Scarf Project.

The newest addition to the Scarf Project is SO North Carolina, who has agreed to participate. Thanks to Karen, from SavvyFrills.com, who contacted them and got all the information.

Here’s the other highlights:

  • SO Alaska announced their colours – Light blue and Buff/Tan.
  • SO Kentucky is not participating this year 😦  They said that they got so many scarves last year, so I suppose they’ll be using those up first.  Hope they’re back next year!
  • Quite a few states have started to receive scarves and other items.  We’re on the way to meeting their goals!
  • One other state may be joining in, but they haven’t confirmed anything yet.  I’ll post again when I get their colours, if they do decide to go ahead with the Project.

Here’s the updated list of the participating states.  The complete information is available on 2016 SO Scarf Project.

Do join in and support the cause!
If you’re on Facebook or Ravelry, check out the groups and join in as well.

  1. I love this site. Each year I am glued to the Special Olympics Data. I enjoy the Projects and try to knit them.
