I guess they're trying to create some excitement among the Indy knitters by asking us to knit 8,000 scarves for the volunteers to wear at the 2012 Super Bowl. Want us to use red heart or cascade yarn. We have to buy the yarn ourselves (limited kits are available for free at the Marion County Libraries) and they will have free knitting classes.
I don't mind knitting for charity, in fact I love that someone benefits from my work. However, I'd like to make several scarfs for this project but it's going to get pricey. Have had cutbacks at work , and I don't have the disposable income that I had at this time last year. (The real estate market sucks big time for residential developers) I'll quite my bellyaching and start on some scarfs. I'll have to use the red heart even though it's not as nice to work with and won't be as warm for the volunteers to wear. Such is life!!!!!
