My scarf for an homeless guy

Hi everybody, I'm probably the slower knitter here. Since this project has started I haven't been able to finish not even a single scarf. In my partial apology I can say that it isn't easy to knit warm wool in the hot Italian summer, but the truth is I am a turtle-knitter.

Now that the autumn has seriously embraced Milan I'm knitting faster, and I'm about to finish my first scarf. Finally.

Yesterday, though, while I was at the park with my dog Valda, I've noticed that the homeless guy who lives there, and that I meet almost every single day, was freezing cold. So I asked to myself: shouldn't I give the scarf I making to him, instead that sending it oversea for other homeless guys?

I'm turning this question on you fellow knitters, because I'm not sure I will be able to complete another scarf for this project I committed for, along with you, so if I give this scarf I'm making to the homeless guy who lives in the park down here, somehow I feel I will turn my back on this great initiative. At the same time, we are knitting for homeless people, aren't we?

Dear Members: S.O.S.!!!

Hello dear members!
*
Do you remember the this post about the Hawaiian ladies
knitting scarves for US homeless?
*
Well, we have a problem
but I pray you´ll help me to find a solution.
The member from California -who had wrote me telling me she
would get the package with the scarves,
and give them away-
changed her mind and unsubscribed from KFH.
*
Thing is, the wonderful Hawaiian ladies knitting group have
FIFTY (50) SCARVES ready to mail to the US
and be given to homeless for Christmas.
*
I NEED A VOLUNTEER -BETTER ONE WHO LIVES IN A BIG CITY
WITH MANY HOMELESS- WILLING TO BE THE ANGEL
TO GIVE THE SCARVES ONE BY ONE...
MAYBE WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY OR FRIENDS...
