Scarves for Maine’s Special Olympics

I just found out that Maine will need scarves ( headbands, mittens and hats) for their Special Olympics next year.

I wish the other New England states were involved in the scarf project as well but is Maine is part of NE so to my  yarn stash I go. I hope you will send in a few items to help out. Message me on facebook if you have any questions.
