Scarves for College-Bound Foster Youth


Not a productive weekend. Just pretend you've never heard of me doing anything with the TKGA.

On an up note, though, I'd like to draw your attention to this


KNITTERS AND CROCHETERS TAKE NOTE!!! The submission period for this year's Red Scarf runs from September 1 to December 15, 2009
A Great Charitable Knitting AND Crocheting Initiative Provides Warmth and Encouragement to Foster Youth

In 2005, OFA launched a unique initiative to warm the hearts (and necks) of college-bound foster youth. We began taking donations of handmade red scarves to put into our Valentine's Day Care Packages.

I learned about this last week from She Shoots Sheep Shots's blog, and really, the word needs to get passed along. This is such a great idea, and I know just where to get some great yarn!
