scarves for the homeless

In the last 18 months i have crocheted, knitted over 250 scarves for the homeless in the edmonton ,alberta, canada area. the goal is to have at least 100 made for thanksgiving.fellow co-workers raised money to buy 100 winter hats last fall, over 100 scarves and 100 hats were donated to the homeless. this has been a wonderful goal to focus on, and i hope to continue for a long time. i had been off work due to an illness and learned how to knit and crochet. so this charity has been good therapy for me. my fellow co-workers and myself are looking forward to this years donations, i am working on getting more people involved in the making of the scarves and hats,the more the better!! I did drop off the scarves at the local TV station but they did not announce it on air, maybe this year. thanks, now hooked on charity,charlotte p.s. now i'm really hooked on crocheting and knitting!!!
