After one year of the bombings at the Boston marathon, the Old South Church, just 100 meters from the finish line, organized a way to spread the love this time around. A group who call themselves the Old South Knitters brewed up the idea for the Marathon Scarf Project: a scarf was to be knit for each finishing marathon runner this year.
They collected handmade scarves
“of royal blue and yellow, the official colors of the Boston Marathon, measuring approximately 4-6 inches wide and 60 inches long.” (UCC)
On April 20th, the scarves were given away, and what I sight they were! Blue and yellow perfection, from all over the world.
Talk about knitters unite 🙂
