Those are beautiful scarves.

I'd love to participate in this, but I'm a slow knitter, and am already signed up for a dishcloth swap on another board, with a deadline zooming at me.

I'm going to dig through my fo's and see if I have any scarves that could work for this. If I do, I'll e-mail the nice lady. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Congratulations Judy on the work you do and the project you've undertaken. It's wonderful folks here, already many involved in charity projects, are always so willing to consider more. Bless you and your project and the service personnel receiving the items.

Judy! I'm actually MotherHenKnits! I'm so glad that you got the scarves!

My yahoo email address is Suziehomemaker AT yahoo DOT com and that's my name here but out in blog land and on Ravelry I'm MotherHenKnits. Sorry for the confusion.

I really hope the guys like the scarves I made. I knit them up just for fun and I was saving them for a time when I had a special recipient. I'm so happy that I found your blog post! How many scarves do you have so far?

Someone suggested that I post how many scarves have been collected so far. That number is 160+ !! We are still collecting and will be until early September. Thank you to all who have contributed. Judy

I have finished my scarf and it will be on its way soon! The colors don't show that well in the picture, but it is a varigated blue/brown combination.

Actually, it started with an email to a few friends who sent it to their friends, and so on. Then people saw my crocheting and knitting. I posted to one knitting blog (at the time, couldn't find crocheting blogs). We got picked up and I think are we're on 3 or 4 blogs! Word of mouth and the internet - it's awesome!

I should have a picture of some of the scarves to post soon. Keep watching for it. You'll love it.
