The Red Scarf Project

Thanks to my co-workers Rosalyn, Cameron and Nicole for modeling this year's Red Scarves!
Time to root through your stash for red, burgundy, cherry or russet yarn! Even though we're gearing up for holiday knitting and crocheting, let's take some time to help out The Foster Care to Success Organization. They are collecting red scarves for their project! Years ago, my friend, Photographer, Gale Zucker told me about this wonderful group. Gale photographed the models for the advertisement below. I thought this would be a good time to think about others and help out this community of deserving students.

From the website:  We 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 for young adults who have left the foster care system.
Here are the scarf guidelines.
It's easy. All you need to do is knit or crochet a soft red scarf, 5-8 inches wide and about 60 inches long. A uni-sex style is best...not too lacy or frilly. Include washing instructions and maybe a note of encouragement to the student. Remember, the scarf does not have to be solid red. It can be a shade of red (burgundy, cherry, russet, stripes with red, etc.)
Mail the scarf or scarves to: 
Foster Care to Success
Red Scarf Project
23811 Chagrin Blvd., Suite 210
Cleveland, OH 44122

The Organization only collects scarves from September 1st through December 15th because of storage limitations. You have plenty of time to complete your scarf! If you can't decide on a pattern, there are a few suggested patterns on the website. Get going! You'll feel good and so will the student! It's a win-win project!
I crocheted 3 scarves this year. 2 red, 1 burgundy!
I bought a skein of this gorgeous red yarn at the recent Stitches West from the Needlepoints West booth. I think I have time to make one more scarf!
One more proposed scarf!
If you live near me, give me your scarf by December 10th and I'll mail it for you!
