2012 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project

A group of women from church decided that our group would help contribute to making some scarves for the Special Olympics.  So I decided that I’d like to help with this project.  My goal has been to make better use of wasted time and what better than using it in serving others.  The instructions that I received was to make the scarf 6 inches wide by 54-60 inches long.  It had to be a certain color of red and blue.  One could either knit or crochet the scarf.  I decided to crochet mine.  I wanted lengthwise stripes, so I crocheted it lengthwise.  It really didn’t take long to make the scarves.  I used my time while waiting,  while carpooling, and while watching political debates.  One of the scarves I made was too long for adding the fringe, the other one was long enough to add the fringe.  I enjoyed working on the service project and being part of a large network of others in serving this wonderful cause.

Before writing this article I decided to do a google search about the project.  What a fun little education I got for the project.  I didn’t realize how big and cool it is.  If you’d like to learn more about the 2012 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project project click here.  The scarves are a symbol of unity, support, compassion and empowerment, as the Special Olympics athletes, coaches, families, volunteers and supporters wear them with pride in knowing they have become part of the Special Olympics family.  Cool isn’t it?

Below is pictures of the scarves I made for the project.
