Woo Hoo! I finished the scarf I've been making for the Special Olympics. :)

I was afraid I would miss the deadline. But, I made it! :cheering:
Here's the scarf:

And here I am, wearing the scarf in my craft room. (I think I look like a pastor or priestess!) :teehee: :

Very nice, Sandy.

Are you feeling any better?

One of our many goals this year is to find some Special Olympics people to work with, or maybe help out at the local olympics. Friends with a Downs syndroms adult child say they need help running the events.

Thanks Deb! :) And yes, I'm finally starting to feel better. It feels good to eat again. I ate like a little piggy today! :teehee:

It's good to hear that you'll be helping out in your area. :thumbsup:

cloud9 You're precious to me too, Dollyce. :heart:

Thanks! The colors of the yarn were chosen by the project, so we were all using the exact same yarn all over the country. Some people were saying, "Can we use something besides Red Heart?" But they were told "No". The main thing was that they wanted all the special olympians to have matching colors for the photos at the event.

I've been impressed to see all the different designs people have made. Some scarves were knit, and others were crochet. I think that a few were even woven! Pretty cool. :wink:

That's so awesome. I taught a couple of people at work to knit, and we're all making scarves too...the Special Olympics are being held here in Boise where we live, so we're pretty excited about it. :)

I strategically took the photo, so the mess is not showing. It's on the other side of the room! :teehee:
