Red necks.

Every once in awhile (ok, pretty much every day), I'm truly moved by the good feelings and warmth generated at our little ol' store. Whether it's the controlled chaos of Tuesday night sock group, or just a quiet little Monday morning when the front table is humming with fix-the-weekend-oops activity, I just feel so happy that we've managed to share our love of the craft with so many - and I'm filled up with the joy that gives us in return.

Another one of these moments came in a BIG way when I heard about the Red Scarf Project. Completely on their own, a group of Loopies had jumped in to this national effort. The Red Scarf Project was begun in 2005, when the Orphan Foundation of America launched a unique initiative to send warmth and encouragement to college-bound foster youth - kids who have "aged out" of the foster program. They began taking donations of handmade red scarves to put into Valentine's Day Care Packages. Word spread quickly around the charitable knitting/crocheting community. In the first year, they took in 3,500 scarves. The following year, that number swelled to over 15,000.

And this year, they're getting 13 scarves from Loops customers:

How cool is that???

P.S. If you'd like to help in a more local way, join our 2nd Sunday Charity Loop Group. We're working toward having 100 Baby Hats ready to give to a local hospital preemie ward by the holidays. Check our new November Class List for date/time.
