Okay, so I was just on Ravelry and found this link to a group collecting both red and white for Georgia and the turqua and blue for MN:  http://www.ravelry.com/groups/special-olympics-georgia-scarf-project .  If you're not a member of Ravelry, then here's the link directly to Georgia's SO site:  http://www.specialolympicsga.org/support/special-events/scarf-project-2011/

The Ravelry group had a post that stated that WA state was able to get all the scarves they needed and didn't need any more. Like I said before, thanks for letting everyone know!  At least there's some indication that the scarves are still being used for Special Olympics!

In addition to WA state and Georgia, California and Idaho are also asking for red and white scarves for the state level competitions.  The national program is using the turqua and blue colors.  Hope this helps anyone who made red and white scarves!

As was stated on the blog before it become obsolete: They have a new NATIONAL campaign. Here is the new website (which was on the blog!)http://scarvesforspecialolympics.wordpress.com/  It was also stated on the blog that ALL of the scarves have been delivered to the WA State SO organization.  Any further scarves can be sent directly to their office in Seattle (you can google it).  Everyone was directed to go to the new website before the old website was deleted.

I was really intrigued by this charity & did a bit of research on it.  The 2011 special olympics scarf colors are actually 886 Blue & 512 Turqua.  They have a website with all the guidelines and information on providiing scarves for the Special Olympics in many different states.  Here is the link:

I plan on going out and buying yard today! : )

I'm researching the differences between rules/requirements for figure skating in the Special Olympics and the traditional Olympics.

I have to crochet 3 scarves for people participating in the Special Olympics that are 5 1/2 inches wide and 55 inches long for a grade in school.

I tried watching it, but I failed to see what was so special about it. I think the regular olympics are special.
