so, i read on ravelry today that the indianapolis super bowl host committee is trying to get folks to knit scarves for people who'll be volunteering at the 2012 super bowl. some of us steeler fans were surprised not to find any mention of donating the scarves to charity at the end of the event or something.
so i suggested that we knit steeler scarves to donate on superbowl sunday (or in time for it) to a homeless shelter or other organization that serves homeless people. response was good! (go steeler fans!) so i thought i might gauge interest here (get it? gauge? see what i did there?). lorna's laces dyed a steelers pride colorway that natural stitches sells, and there are plenty of other good solid black and solid gold yarns out there. what do you think? want to stitch with us? got a charity in mind that could benefit from them?
doesn't have to be scarves, btw. could be any keep-somebody-warm accessory. no need to restrict anyone's charitable urges! edited to add that, for that matter, the donations needn't be black and gold or otherwise team-specific. just warm :)
