My first finished object for 2009 was mailed today to the Special Olympics Winter Games Scarf Project. I had to use the required Red Heart yarn which was oh, not so lovely to work with. Mine is worked up in a single crochet, lengthwise. For some reason, crochet seemed a fitting technique (I had not crocheted an item in decades.) It's funny because many of my knitting buds thought the same and crocheted too!
Soon the scarf will be in the hands of a worthy group and my hope is that it will embrace a very Special Olympian.
