|Scarves I made for the 2011 project – all ready to go|
I am excited to be able to pass on the news that the 2012 Special Olympics Scarf Project is getting started but also that they have announced the official colors.
*drum roll please*
NAVY and CHERRY RED
So it’s a blue and red kind of year!
If you are looking for more information on the project, do visit their website at http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/
The website includes the color numbers as well as pictures of the yarn to be used.
Like last year, Red Heart brand yarn is to be used; however, there is additional news. Scarf makers are not restricted to the Super Saver line only. This year you can use the colors from the Super Saver line or the Soft line of Red Heart yarn. I know I will be using the Red Heart Soft yarn simply because it is softer. It may be a little more expensive, but there is something to be said about cuddling up in a nice warm soft scarf.
I hope you take a moment to consider donating your time and efforts to making a scarf (or two or three or twenty) for our Special Olympians this upcoming year.
