2008/11/16–Eagle Scout Project

Normally when I get a comment posted to this site I approve it but don’t make much of a comment one way or the other. Today I got a different sort of comment that I felt really needed to be highlighted by me making a regular post about it (emphasis is mine). You can read the project it is commenting on here (fleece neck gaiter pattern).

I’m proud of (and insanely humbled by) the amount of work this young man put into his Eagle Project.

Hello Im new to the whole commenting bit…. but I must thank Uberpest, so I’ll give it a try. Uberpest I just finished one piece of my Eagle Scout Project which involved making Neck Gaiters for the military. I successfully made 301 Neck Gaiters from 40 yds of fabric and thanks to your ingenuity 301 of our Armed Forces will be receiving Neck Gaiters in Christmas packages this year. Thank you Uberpest, I and surely many others are in your debt. Respectfully, EJ

Thank you to everyone who uses these patterns for this type of work. I keep thinking this site is just a little hole-in-the-wall, but it’s nice to know there’s a ripple effect that helps out so many.

What a wonderful young man and how very thoughtful to give you credit. Thank you, E.J. for your awesome project and accomplishment. And, thank you, Uberpest, for posting not only the pattern for Neck Gaiter, but for posting E.J.’s comments. ~ Mom T
