Stash-busting Scarf

It's the "first project" that I never made...a garter-stitch scarf with huge yarn and huge needles. I rather like it. It's for donating to the Red Scarf Project, to be sent to a college student who has aged out of foster care. Hopefully they like it too.

From a former foster child and current child advocate,

Thanks for thinking about college students who have aged out of foster care.

I'm a married woman with a husband and two stepchildren now -- but looking back, when I first started college, I would have really appreciated someone taking the time to make something for me.

Have you heard about the Orphan Foundation of America? You can apply to be a virtual mentor through them.

I'm currently mentoring an 18 year old foster alumna who is now in college -- and, so far, it is one of the most wonderful and worthwhile experiences that I have ever had!
