6th Annual 60 Scarves in 60 Days Challenge!

It is that time of year again ... a time to crochet, knit or weave scarves that will benefit YOUR local community! It is time for the 6th Annual 60 Scarves in 60 Days Challenge!

This Challenge originated on my blog six years ago. Last year I moved the Challenge to Ravelry.com and the pooled efforts were amazing!

How the Challenge works:
  1. Crochet or knit a scarf (or more) for charity. You can use a pattern (give credit to the designer if that’s what the pattern calls for!), learn a new stitch, or create your own pattern.

  2. Pledge it for a local charity near YOU; no need to ship! Check with your local homeless shelters, Salvation Armys, religious institutions, and schools to find a home for your scarf/scarves.

  3. To have your scarf count towards the goal, you can go on Ravelry, upload an image and label it ”2009 Scarf for 60 Day Challenge.” Or post about it on your blog and leave the link here in my blog comments.

  4. The scarf/scarves must be created by hand between September 1st and November 30th, 2009, midnight, eastern time, to count. (Yes, we know this is really 90 days, but we’re keeping the name of 60 days)

  5. Any skill level, age and gender can participate! Spread the word!

  6. If you have a website or blog, feel free to save the image below to your own computer and display it proudly!
This Challenge is a great stash buster AND does YOUR local community good!

Are you going to start a thread on Ravelry for this challenge? I'm working two scarves right now!
