Amazing yarn and warm scarves for the elders

I just had to share photos of my newest project. I am a knitter with a group that provides knit and crocheted items for elders on the Pine Ridge Reservation in SD. So many time the elders will give what small items they have to their children and especially their grandchildren. We work with respected members of the tribe to see that our crafted items reach those in most need, which in reality is everyone. I fell in love with Amazing yarn, and so far made three scarves and am started on the 4th. Being a wool blend I know it will provide warmth and the colors are spectacular. Pictured are scarves made with 4 skeins ea in the colors Aurora, Wildflower, and Rainforest. I am delighted with the colors and quality. They are going to help keep somebody warm this winter for sure. We can always use crafting hands and hearts. If anyone would like to check out the group the link is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PineRidgeElders/
