Super scarves

When it comes to the NFL and the Super Bowl, the last things I'd associate with them are handmade items. Of all the games played during the season, the championship is certainly the least friendly for the average fan to attend. Tickets are not easy to acquire, and if you can, they are prohibitively expensive.

Imagine my surprise to see that one project for the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis is knitting eight thousand scarves for the event's volunteers. What a neat way for the host city to keep these people warm and give them a unique memento for their efforts.

OK, so it's not knitting for those in need, but it's rare to see something on this scale favor handmade donations over mass production. If you want to contribute to this blue scarf project, there's more information here.
