« Calling all knitters and crocheters… We are looking to collect 600 scarves for the children and faculty of Sandy Hook Elementary School. If we cannot wrap our arms around these children and their teachers, we will wrap them in warmth with scarves handmade with love in their school spirit colors. If you can knit or crochet, please help by knitting or crocheting a scarf. Scarves need to be child-sized, 5-6 inches in width and 40-50 inches in length. Any pattern you choose is fine, and fringe is acceptable too. Please use a kid-friendly yarn that is washable and make the scarf in a combination of green and white. Feel free to add a little note of support and encouragement too. The deadline for scarves is January 15, 2013, so we may get them to the children as quickly as possible. For more information, please email Jeanne Malgioglio at jmbounce@yahoo.com or Deana Saunders at saundersdeana@gmail.com Thank you so much for helping heal these broken hearts one stitch at a time.
