Special Scarves

In 2009 the folks in Boise, Idaho wanted to provide a welcome gift to the athletes participating in the Special Olympics held there.  A call went out to knitters across the country and scarves started pouring in - they asked for 5000 and got nearly 60,000 from all over the world.  Red Heart has sponsored the Special Olympics Scarf Project ever since.  That Other Girl's school textile club chose this for one of their community service projects and these two scarves are my contribution.

This is the table with the rest of the scarves that were donated on it.  The kids in the textile club did pretty good!

Great idea, and I love the colors!

Your model looks less and less enthused as time goes by
