Update on Special Olympics Scarves

The scarf project for the Special Olympics Winter Games was a rousing success! Hoping for 5,000 scarves for athletes and visiting dignitaries, the Special Olympics received over 60,000 scarves! The athletes, coaches, parents, neighbors, community members,...everyone was encouraged to wear a scarf in support of the athletes and the Games. Scarves were seen at Obama's Inaguration when athletes marched in the Inagural Parade, VP Biden & his wife were photographed wearing scarves.
Click on the link above if you're interested in seeing photos, the last one shows huge boxes stacked high, and one open with bags of scarves spilling out. Pretty impressive what volunteer crocheters and knitters can accomplish. We really make a difference.

Now I'm looking for similar photos of the baby hats made for Save the Children/Warm Up America's Knit One/Save One program.
