Something Warm For Charity...

Our Books A Million yarny group has been creating scarves, hats and mittens for less fortunate kids in Appalachia. This is my first piece to donate to this cause.

I completed my scarf Monday so that I could add it to the rest of the creations on Tuesday night. Then I grabbed my current work in progress, some yarn to share with the gals for the project, and ran out the door - without my scarf! Aaaarrrggghhh!

I knit it in Rio de la Plata hand spun 100% wool. I love how the pattern just revealed itself as I knit back and forth. I know it t will help keep someone warm this winter, but first I have to get it to the gal who's collecting all our donations for that to happen. Man, I can't believe I left it behind tonight!

I'll be taking it out to her tomorrow to be added to the rest for our first shipment North, and then my plan is to make a few pairs of mittens and a couple of hats during the next few weeks to contribute, too.

If you're interested in donating a cap, pair of mittens or a scarf, please email me. I'll let you know how you can send your contribution to me so we can add it to our upcoming shipments. They can be knit, crocheted or sewn (polar fleece is perfect for sewing). Anything to keep the kids warm!

Donna, Sounds like a worth while Charity, I don't knit or crochet, sorry.
I just wanted you to know I received the button jars yesterday and gave one to a friend. They are darling. Thanks.

That wool is gorgeous, and I love the pattern that revealed itself as you knitted the scarf. What a great piece for such a worthwhile cause.

Your scarf is beautiful! How nice of you to donate it to an needly child. I would like to donate something, would a pair of my knitted houseshoes work? Twyla
