I just read my issue of Knitting Daily (www.knittingdaily.com) that comes to my inbox each day and found there is something called the Red Scarf Project. Donations of unisex scarves are being sought for donation to children who have been in foster care and have now moved on to college.
Please check out the OFA site at: http://www.orphan.org/index.php?id=40 and if you're a knitter or crocheter, I hope you'll join me in making a scarf or two. I'll post a picture when I finish my first one.
BTW, Knitting Daily will offer a free pattern next week to use for your donation, but there are so many available right now, why wait? Make your first from one of the sources listed at the OFA site listed above or from a pattern you already have, or make one up yourself - you're creative after all. Then, visit KD next week and be inspired to make another!
Peace to all,
