Recently, I mailed one scarf to Operation Gratitude per their very specific instructions. I received a thank you very quickly. Then, late in this week, I got an email asking for more donations to ensure more soldiers will get care boxes over the holidays.
So I’ll send these along, too. As you can see, both are pull through scarves. I think these make great scarves because you don’t have to knot them and they stay close to your neck for warmth.
If you want to donate a scarf or an item they need, just go to operationgratitude.com. The photos there, make me feel happy. I know that is not the point, but it is a great bonus. It only takes me a night or two to use double thickness malabrigo leftovers and create a scarf. The site is well organized and you will be told just how to send the scarves.
I’ll leave you this weekend on the swingset in town. I’m doing my best to embrace the colder weather. We went from 80 to 4o this week and it really bothered me. I am going to fake it till I make it. I’ve decided as long as the sun shines I will be thankful for that.
