Nittany Knits

Monday, October 02, 2006

So you want to come to the Knit-A-Thon, but you're not sure what type of things to knit or crochet for charity. The next couple of bolgs will hopefully inspire you to grab some yarn and make some great items. Let's start with the Red Scarf project. This is Miss Sarah, who works at the Celtic Knot in Ellicott City, MD. She is a very gifted knitter who designed this scarf for the 2005 Knit Out in Washington DC. The people at The Orphan Foundation Of America loved Miss Sarah's scarf soooooo much that they named their project to collect handmade scarves for foster youth in transition- The Red Scarf Project. (By the by- Miss Sarah took first place in the scarf contest for the Knit Out judged by Ms. Nicki Epstein herself!) Any red scarves collected at the October 14 Knit-A-Thon will be going to this great charity. Get all your red yarn out of your stash, and see what inspires you!
