Get crafty to support the Special Olympics
The Special Olympics USA Scarf Project, sponsored by Red Heart Super Saver yarns, is bringing knitters and crocheters together to support the Special Olympics movement. They’re asking people across the country to knit scarves in the 2011 official colors—Red Heart Super Save 886 Blue and 512 Turqua—so that they can be given to those involved in the 35 winter games across the USA.
You can use any pattern you like to create the scarves, so
long as you incorporate both official colors. For a fun challenge, give one of
their free downloadable patterns a try.

Maryland, Minnesota, Montana – Deadline: February 18

New Hampshire, Connecticut, Colorado, Washington – Deadline: February 26
South Dakota – Deadline: March 1
