I am in a few loom knitting groups on Facebook. And one group ( cant remember which one) posted about Scarfs for the Special Olympics. At that second I wanted to make some. I love helping people, when I can. Red Heart yarn is a sponsor. So the yarn people have to make the scarfs with has to be red yarn. The colors for the 2012 Special Olympics are Red Heart Super Saver Cherry Red 0319, Red Heart Super Saver Soft Navy 0387, Red Heart Soft Navy 4604, Red Heart Soft Really Red 9925
Deadlines for this year are fast approaching. People who want to make scarfs can send them to the state they live in. Rhode Island only has 26 scarfs. So I plan to make 4 by their deadline , Feb 11. Shipping only takes one day so I have some time to make them.
The colors for 2013 will be announced in April. Can't wait to start looming :) I want to make about 3-4 a month for them. Red Heart yarn is less than $4 at my local Walmart.
