Red Scarf Project 2008

Just a friendly reminder that we are still accepting red scarves for the Red Scarf Project. The store offers a 10% discount on red yarn to be used for donated scarves (although as I type this there is still the store sale which is 20% off ending Friday). You can drop off completed scarves at the store by October 10th and Sheila will mail. You can also attach gift cards with the scarf for the students or even a nice handwritten card with washing instructions. I just read they are asking for quality scarves, not quantity.

Here's some more info from the website...

Scarf Size: Approximately 60" long and 5" to 8" wide.
Style: Think unisex collegiate. Ask yourself if your son, brother, and/or husband would enjoy receiving the scarf. Fringes are optional. Your scarf should drape and tie easily.
Yarn: Preferably DK, double fingering-weight, worsted weight, or light bully yarns. No laceweight, super-chunky, or mohair yarns as there are many people who find mohair too itchy. The yarn should be soft.
Color: Red! However, this could mean burgundy, cherry, russet, red stripes with other colors, or multicolor hues including red. Other unisex colors, including black, navy, teal, olive or gold are also welcome.
Finished and tagged: Yarn ends should be securely sewn in. For a personal touch, attach a tag saying "Handmade for You" with your first name, city, and group affiliation, if any. Donors have also included washing instructions, messages of encouragement, gift cards, burger bucks, books of stamps, etc.

Here's a collection of the 13 scarves we have collected so far, in various yarns, patterns, and styles.
They all look so beautiful, and they feel divine. The various yarns range from cotton, wool, and alpaca.
