scarves for special Olympics

http://www.scarvesforspecialolympics.org/gallery-2012

Here is a project after my own heart My goal is to make 5 for the CT athletes by Feb. and at least one this weekend when I am in SC visiting my dad and i will have him mail that one to the local SC special olympic team. I think i will try and teach Logan to knit and see if he wants to try and make one. He know a lot of the athletes from my job and would think its cool. Anyone else going to make at least one??? COME ON... I dare ya!!!

Oh SO NOT NECESSARY!!! The yarn is so cheep and I like to have a "challenge" so I get off my but and actually do it! I started last night and I am going to see if i can get the needles onto the plane on the way to NC. worse-case scenario is they take my $4.00 needles

I would love to learn how to crochet and make granny square scarves - they look so pretty.

Got the yarn today at Michael's - 1 skein of each color @ $2.47 each. Hey Lisa - I'll be happy to knit one for you too.
You know, i never learned to crochet. Since I am a leftie, i sat across from my knitting instructor and learned that way - that was before my oldest was born - so, over 31 yrs ago.

They sell wooden needles that they will allow you to take on the plane- you might want to get a set as the metal ones are normally confiscated.

Hey Lisa- the scarf is under way. Instead of sending money, let me make your scarf in memory of Jim. I'll take a picture when I finish.
Ryan - i love knitting too. In fact, in the winter, I often put aside my scrapping to knit. Going down to work on it in a few minutes.
