Scarves for the Homeless this Christmas
The St Anthony Foundation is a charitable organization that aids the homeless and hungry in San Francisco, California. Every day St. Anthony's in San Francisco provides over 1600 people with food, clothing, drug and alcohol recovery and medical care. To date they have served more than 37 million meals to the hungry.

They are collecting hand-knit scarves to give to the homeless every Christmas.

Here's the website, with more info:
http://www.stanthonysf.org/?q=donate/knit

If you would like to help, just cast on a scarf, using mid-weight washable wool or wool-blend yarn (please NO cotton yarn - it's not warm and holds moisture). The finished scarf should be 5-7 inches wide, and 48-60 inches long. Use neutral, bright, or classic colored yarn (no white or light shades, please).

The Deadline this year is December 21, 2011.

Scarves can be dropped off or mailed to:

St. Anthony Foundation
Attn: Knitting Project
150 Golden Gate Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102
