Scarfs for Relay for Life

I would like to tell you about my mother, Nancy L. Brest, of Orrville, Ohio.

She has been a knitter for more years than I care to count. Over the years, friends and family have benefitted from her knitting prowess. Now in her mid-70's only arthritis in her hands has slowed her knitting.

Our town, Orrville is participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. As a member of our church's team, she hit upon a money-maker for the cause.

Last winter, at Wal-mart, she discovered the fun yarns that Lion Brand has available. They were easy to make, only took her two days to make one, and any discomfort to her hands was slight. So over the winter & spring she has knitting at least 30 scarves ( and still counting!). The cost of the yarns, as well as 100% of the proceeds of the sale of the scarves, at $25 each, she has donated to Relay for Life. To date, she has earned $650 for Relay for Life.
Other women in her team have also contributed scarves, but as the most experienced knitter, she beat them all.

She has made scarves from just about every single color of Fun Fur yarn & some also from Polarspun. The yarns became very popular & hard to find at Wal-mart & Jo-Ann Fabrics.

When yarns from those stores were not available, she turned to the internet & was able to purchase them directly from Lion Brand.
