Scarves for IL Special Olympics

19 Jan

I pledged 5 scarves for the 2011 Special Olympics for Illinois – I have finished 10!

This is just a quick shot of the box I had planned on filling…. and noting that I ended up having to use two boxes. I’m excited to be able to participate in such a wonderful project. Anyone who creates knows that if your output is less than your input (what you make vs. what you send), then you end up with a big mess!

So it is good to be able to create and know that it is going to go for something worthy. Someone will smile when they see a scarf I made.

It’s just exciting.

There are still plenty of states that have not met their deadline or their goal – so if you crochet or knit and want to donate your time to create a scarf then follow this link and check out the details. Basics: make a scarf in the designated colors and mail it.

So – this is my contribution for IL. Once I get this semester started and I can see what sort of obligation I need to make to each class, I’ll be crocheting some more for other states that are in need.

    Wow! 10 is great! I've got 4 done so far so we'll see if I can squeeze out a few more. This was a very fun and rewarding project. I'll definitely participate next year!
