Warm and Fuzzy SF January 3, 2008

I recently got a note from Ellen, who is working on a very cool project:

I’m a high school student in San Francisco organizing a scarf drive in the city. You know, folks knit scarves, donate them, we get them to folks in need. (In this case, they’re being donated to the Bay Area Rescue Mission.) It’s my first try doing it — all the info is at myspace.com/warmandfuzzySF.

I have to admit that knitting is about my sixth craft and though I love it, I’m not especially good at it — but I will be starting my (garter stitch!) scarf for the drive during the Blazers game tonight. Here’s the first scarf I ever made, seven years ago, which was a Christmas present for my brother David:

If you’d like to make and donate a scarf to Warm and Fuzzy SF too, the drive is going on through Valentine’s Day — just drop your scarf off at — or mail it to — one of these lovely establishments:

3897 18th St (at Sanchez)

Greenwich Yarn
2073 Greenwich St (at Webster)

Atelier Yarns
1945 Divisadero St (between Pine and California)

Mendels/Far-Out Fabrics
1556 Haight St (between Clayton and Ashbury)

The Gables
5636 Geary Blvd (at 21st Ave)
(415) 751-8152

601 Irving St (at 7th Ave)

Thanks, Ellen!
