During the first two years that Threads OKC has been happening we’ve gotten a lot of use out of a couple of nice patterns. The variety of colors and textures has been really cool to see as completed scarves have been donated.
For this month, I thought it would fun to select a pattern for us to all work on together. Lion Brand Yarn has a pattern online that looks neat to try. You can find it here.
I think it will be fun to see finished scarves in the coming months that are made with the same pattern, yet turn out different based on the yarn selection.
We can even share our finished products on the Facebook page so that people who can’t attend the monthly work day can see how it’s going.
I’m excited to share that this year the Alumni Organization’s Waves of Service program is joining up again with Step Forward Day to give more people a chance to participate all around the country, and Threads of Compassion OKC is one of the projects.
So all you Waves out there: join us for this day of service. Not in the Oklahoma City area? No problem! We’re a virtual location, so you can join in wherever you are and just let Pepperdine know you’re participating. Once your scarf is done, you can send it to us for distribution.
