The Scarf Project is back! With a lot of help from The Knitting Nest in Austin, and Cascade Yarns, we are able to bring this great project back.
Our colors for 2014 are red and black. Dimensions are 54-60 inches long; 6 to 7 inches wide; packed in ziplock bags for mailing. The notes to the athletes are great, so by all means include those, we just ask you please not attach them to the scarves themselves.
Scarves can be made in any pattern and can be knitted, loomed or crocheted. Please wash the scarf before sending it, especially if you smoke or have pets.
Our deadline is January 24, 2014, but feel free to send scarves as they’re completed to:
Special Olympics Texas Scarf Project 1804 Rutherford Lane Austin, TX 78754
There will be other places drop off locations, such as the Knitting Nest; we’re working on those drop off locations and will announce them at a later date. For now, if you knit a scarf tomorrow, it can be sent to the SOTX Chapter office in Austin.
Please share this info with any of your crafty friends who might enjoy participating!
Who will bring the gold home from Austin? We can’t wait to see! Almost 2,600 athletes and Unified Partners will compete in bowling, volleyball and powerlifting. Here’s where to find all the info you need before you hit the road...
The Texas Bowling Centers Association is a big fan of Special Olympics Texas athletes. During January and February, many of their member centers will sell paper bowling pins to benefit SOTX! Be sure to thank them for their support.
Congratulations to Alamo Heights High School and Brady High School, which have been recognized as the first Unified Champion Schools in the state of Texas! Both schools received a gym banner that denotes their honor.
