It's Back - Are we ready????

We all knitted these scarves -

"The idea for a scarf project resulted from an opportunity to provide a gift of welcome for the athletes of the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games held in Boise Idaho"

"Special Olympics Idaho then carried on the tradition with their own state scarf project in 2010"

"Now in 2011, the Special Olympics USA Scarf Project is spreading its wings and going national! You can now choose any of the 33 participating Special Olympics Programs to support!"

Lots of information can be found here.

There isn't a campaign for Georgia but there is one for Idaho (of course) and Minnesota and Virginia. The official colors for this year are Red Heart 886 Blue and 512 Turqua. The same colors for all states so we could knit them and then decide where to send them. Or we could each send some to different states.

What do you say? Are you willing to join in this year????
