Deadline extended, complete by April 11th! Boston Marathon Scarf Project

boston-marathon-finish.jpgOld South Church's vision is to wrap each runner in the love poured into stitches of handmade blue and yellow scarves. They promise to wrap runners in your love until all scarves are distributed.  At the Raging Wool Yarn Shop, we are collecting scarves that you made and shipping them all to Old South Church on April 10th.  We also special ordered the perfect Blue and Yellow yarns and have a special promotion in place in the event you need to buy yarns for this charitable project.

"By choosing to create a simple blue and yellow scarf, you are taking part in a very public proclamation of love over hate and a very personal moment with the runner who accepts your gift."
