I would love to invite the "Knitting Daily" community to join in a project to knit scarves for the athletes of the 2010 Special Olympics Idaho Winter Games! We are looking for 650 scarves that we need in hand by March 9th!
I have posted all of the information under the Events & Charities Forum, and hope knitters from across the USA are inspired to warm the hearts and fuel the spirit of the Special Olympics athletes!
Last year the knitting community was incredibly generous in creating over 55,000 scarves for the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games, and the sense of welcome, respect and kindness was beyond explanation.
I have posted a video of this story on my member profile (OlympicScarves).
Thank you so much for your community's consideration in embracing this project for Special Olympics - the smiles on the athletes faces sure said it all!
Have a great day!
