Knitting For Charity

I have decided to donate to the Charity "Knitting for Charity". They take 8X8 inch knitted or crocheted block donations to create wonderful warm blankets for the orphans left from the Aids epidemic in Africa. I am so excited about this project and I love to knit so it is a perfect fit for me.

If you would like to help, please drop off your 8X8 inch squares anytime. Needful Things will pay all the postage to get the blocks to the ladies in Africa who put the blocks together. If donating a block please leave a yarn tail on your project of 3-4 yards for sewing the blocks together. Any stitch or pattern is accepted. They love to get wool blocks but will take anything. If using thin yarn, please use two strands so the blankets will be warm'

Together we can truly make a difference in a child's life. Once I get a few blocks in I will post them on this blog. I am also offering knitting classes if you would like to learn the basics of knitting. Please contact me for information.
