To remember those whose lives were taken, brave responders, and those still recovering from the Boston Marathon tragedy, the Old South Church in Boston is putting together the Marathon Scarf Project. They are collecting handmade (knit or crochet) scarves for runners of the Boston Marathon. Organizers of this project say, “In this year of Remembrance and Hope, our vision is to wrap each runner in the love poured into stitches of handmade blue and yellow scarves. We promise to wrap runners in your love until all your scarves are distributed.”
