Chase the Chill, a group that knits and crochets scarves to be donated to those in need, took to Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee Co. in Lynn on Saturday for a sit and knit. The group plans to donate the scarves to Lynn Economic Opportunity’s (LEO) Head Start program once they are completed. Group organizer Kecia Rideout of Lynn has been donating the scarves, or scarf bombings, for four years and this is the first year the scarves will be going to LEO. “I grew up in Lynn and I have a skill and talent that I can use to help the community,” said Rideout.
