Update: 60 Scarves in 60 Days Challenge

We have, to date, 25 people, 26 including myself, participating in our 4th Annual 60 Scarves in 60 Days Challenge!  I believe this to be another new record of participants!  Whoo hoo!!

Here is the list of all those who are participating:

  • Sandie at Crafty Corral  just finished scarf #4 and is starting #5
  • Sherri at CrochetR is working on her fourth scarf
  • Tracie at Fibers by Tracie has completed her 5th scarf and was recently nearly caught breaking her *fiber diet* to purchase more yarn for more scarves ...
  • Sheila at Just Another Hooker is working on her first scarf
  • Bunny from Bunny's Blog has completed her third scarf and has started working on her fourth 
  • Ellen over at GoCrochet has completed her second and will be sending hers to Threads of Compassion in Chicago. 
  • Haley of CT
  • Priscilla of has finished her sixth (and she's also close to completing her personal goal of creating 100 items for charity this year!)
  • Sonia of
  • Jennifer of; has completed on her second scarf, but I'm going to up it to 7 scarves as she has 5 for sale to benefit Breast Cancer Research.  You can buy one of her beautiful scarves, or purchase the pattern for it here.
  • Beata of who has three five a grand total of 6 scarves and says, "I can't believe how quick they were to make." 
  • Jane of has completed her 4th scarf, the latest one using the tunisian simple stitch in fuschia.
  • Valarie of Chino Valley, AZ; she donated two scarves she crocheted to her local church.  Her Church donates clothing & food to the homeless.
  • Olga of CT says "I already finished one scarf and started thesecond, so you can count with two from me."
  • Lucy, an elementary school teacher in Wisconsin says, "I know that every school could use scarves. There is always a child that comes to school without proper clothing in winter. If it's an adult scarf, perhaps the child's mother needs it. You can count on my for at least one scarf for my school."
  • Lori of CT has completed three scarves.
  • Robyn of is sending out a scarf to charity
  • Maven of has a scarf done for the  Red Scarf Project project with another one started.

  • Joyce of who has two scarves completed and thinks working on this challenge may be bringing her teams luck.  She might be right! Go Patriots!!
  • Robin of has an incredible eight scarves done for the challenge! Eight!  (Robin, thank you so much for reminding me!!)

    Joining the Challenge are:
  • Nancy of who has completed three scarves.
  • Lucy, a member of the Crochetville group has also completed three scarves and shares the details about them here:
  • Scarlet of has completed a scarf that will be sent to a platoon serving in Iraq.
  • Where are we in reaching the 60 Scarves in 60 Days goal?

                      ...        Drumroll please!      ...

    As of today, we have EXCEEDED the 60 Scarves in 60 Days Goal with having  69 completed scarves and  10 in process!!  How wonderful, how marvelously wonderful!!!  {VBG}

    The next question that comes to mind is, can we beat last year's number?  Last year, as a collective, we created 80 scarves.  There are still nine more days of this Challenge left!  Can we make a dozen (or more) scarves in the next nine days?  I think we can!

    Why not add your name to the growing list and create a scarf for charity and help us beat last year's total?  You can use up some stash (while making room for some new fiber), and try a new stitch or technique-- and you can have your name entered in my drawing for a lovely prize!  All you need to do is go here for the official rules!Tags: , , ,
