Special Olympics yarn

I hightailed it to my local Walmart yesterday and was able to get both colors of Red Heart Super Saver needed for the Special Olympic scarves. I have already begun one scarf. Photos will be forthcoming when I'm done. I hope the two colors play well together. We are not supposed to use any other colors. Just those two.

If you are looking for patterns, you might try Crochet Pattern Central. Lots of scarf pattern links in one place.

In the meantime, I finished a few washcloths with the pink cotton prize yarn Sandy sent me. I had enough for three 8" cloths and the last one is not edged. I will probably keep that one for myself and send the other three off.

That's all for now. Back to crocheting!

Happy crocheting!


  1. I like the colors. Wasn't there a big controversy last year about how the scarves were distributed. YOU are always right there to help others. YOu have a wonderfully good heart.

  2. I'm not sure. I think they collected many more scarves than they expected, but as long as all the Special Olympic athletes get one, the rest can be used to warm a cold neck. That's fine with me. The families of a special needs child need the encouragement as well.
