It's been posted that the Red Scarf Project is looking for drop off spots for completed scarves. You can find information on the Red Scarf Project Here:

http://nownormaknits2.typepad.com/red_scarf_project_2007/

http://www.orphan.org/red_scarf_project.html

We've volunteered to be a drop off point AND we want to reward our knitter/crocheters with a 10% off their purchase when they drop off a scarf at our store. We're located in the SF Bay Area.

We haven't quite figured out how to handle scarves that are sent in, but if you want to send one in, please let us know and we'll work with you.

We'd also like to invite you to join us in making this scarves at our monthly Knit for the Red Scarf Sundays - the first Sunday of every month from 1-3pm starting with Sunday, October 1st.

See you there!

Lily Chin has a free pattern for the project at http://www.orphan.org/red_scarf_project.html -- does anyone have any idea what it looks like? I would love to see a picture ...

This page has pictures of some completed scarves. http://nownormaknits2.typepad.com/photos/completed_scarves/cookie1.html The pictures are too small on my phone to tell if one is the Lily Chin. Can you tell?

I don't *think* any of them are ... I am slightly too unadventurous to try the pattern without knowing (at all) what it would look like, but it sounds intriguing!
