Between showers, we managed to get a few people to knit a bit, tho. What’s this Longest Scarf thing? As part of the celebration of the International Year of Natural Fibres, teams around the world will knit sections of the World’s Longest Scarf that will all be joined together at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival Oct. 17-18, 2009. The goal is to raise $250, that Heifer Intenational will use to donate fleece-bearing animals of all kinds to needy families all around the world. Heifer not only donates the animals, but provides the necessary training so that the families can nurture and grow their herds and become self-sufficient. The money will be raised by donation of $ per row knitted/crocheted or $ per inch woven/felted.
