For the past two or three years I have been participating in the Special Olympics Scarf Project. This year I have gotten an early start on it. Ya!
The project is really easy to participate in if you know how to knit or crochet.
I have 4 scarves done so far and have a few more to go. Last year I sent 5 or 6 along with my sweet friend Nikkie. If you are interested in this project here is the web site to learn more about Indiana's Special Olympics Chapter http://soindiana.org/donate/2013-scarf-project/.
But here is the quick info for the scarfs.
In 2016, we hope to receive 400 scarves to give to athletes, volunteers and supporters at the State Winter Games and Polar Plunges.
In order for the scarves to get to Winter Games, the deadline is Monday, January 4 2016.
The official Indiana colors for 2016 are:
Red Heart- 319 Cherry Red
Red Heart- 311 White
We recommend scarves be a 6-inch width and 54-60 inches including fringe in length.
We have no pattern requirements. Each scarf is handcrafted with love, and we welcome each pattern be chosen in the same fashion.
Please mail scarves to:
