Super scarves for Indy

Knitting and the Super Bowl aren’t exactly birds of a feather, but this year’s 8,000 volunteers will be decked out in hand-made scarves in Colts colors:

Super Bowl XLVI will be Feb. 5 in Indianapolis. Last year, Super Bowl organizers asked knitters from around the world to knit blue and white scarves for the event’s 8,000 volunteers.

Five members of St. Cloud Knitters, a group of knitters, made seven scarves for the volunteer project. Overall, 12,494 handmade scarves have been donated, according to the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee.
