Senior Scarf Christmas

I now have 26 scarves for the Senior Christmas Scarf Project!! That's right, no stuttering here, I did say 26!! A couple wonderful women, that work in my building, are responsible for 7 of those scarves! These are the beautiful scarves that they donated:

I've completed 5 more scarves myself since my last post :). These are the scarves I crocheted:

I'ts getting very close to when the scarves will need to be delivered to the Center for Seniors, so there isn't much longer to complete more scarves! I'm very happy with the number I've been able to accumulate and know that it will make someone's Christmas just a bit brighter and warmer ;).
I also came up with a new idea to go along with the scarves. Since these scarves will be Christmas gifts, I wanted to spread the joy of Christmas, and it's meaning, just a bit more. I decided that I'm going to use Business Card stock paper to put Bible verses on. I'm going to punch a hole in the corner of the business card and tie a card to each scarf. My wonderful supervisor already had some Business Card stock paper that she is letting me use so that I didn't have to buy any!

I greatly appreciate all of the donations I have received for this project! I'm so excited and thrilled that these scarves are almost on their way to their new homes :). I have to have all of this done by next weekend so that I can pass all of this along to my boyfriend to drop off to the Center for Seniors next week! If I'm not back this week, I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!


  1. The business card idea is unique and will certainly add a "personal" touch to each individual scarf. I also love how each scarf you've completed is of a different style. Impressive Suzy! Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
