Winter Games is less than a month away and there is still time to get involved in the Scarf Project! As of now, we still need more than 1,000 scarves for our athletes! With a lot of help from The Knitting Nest in Austin, and Cascade Yarns, we already have about 1,200 scarves through this great project.

Our colors for 2015 are green and blue--the shades are your choice. Pick something that makes you happy! The dimensions: 54-60 inches long; 6 to 7 inches wide; packed in ziplock bags for mailing. 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, since many of our athletes have serious allergy issues.

The deadline to send scarves is Friday, Jan. 30.

Feel free to send scarves as they’re completed to:

Special Olympics Texas Scarf Project

1804 Rutherford Lane
Austin, TX 78754

If you’re in Austin, you can drop off scarves at the Knitting Nest. If you’re in another city and know of a knitting shop that wants to participate as a drop-off site, please let us know; otherwise, feel free to send to Austin! 

Please share with any of your crafty friends who might enjoy participating!
