relay of life

This project just started out to be a couple of scarfs for my daughter lori who is on a committee in winter haven florida for the relay of life I was going to knit just a few fun fur scarfs and before I knew it I had two large stuffed bubbly envelopes full of scarfs for the project. All the money for chance tickets will go to the american cancer society, I'm so excited about the chance tickets and doing sometime for a cause every little bit helps and I'm already thinking about next year and crocheting some throws out of the relay of life purple and knitting more of the fun fur scarfs in the different colors for the different cancer cause's.This is just a little something I can do to make a difference to those in need and I'm thinking of different projects for next year. I buy a little bit of yarn at a time so I can afford to do this I didn't know something this small could make me so happy and to touch my heart and others and to think it just started out as a couple of scarfs. I have a whole year so who knows how many scarfs and afghans I'll beable to do?
