Knitting for Charity

Our newest and biggest contributor to our Knitting for Charity Project is Karlie.

She has been so great and loves this project. She has now completed 83 plus squares. Isn't that so fabulous. Karlie is involved in the special needs mutual program and has almost completed her award. She will be 41 years old next month. When she was just a baby she was diagnosed with a serious heart problem and wasn't suppose to live to be a year old. She has been to special doctors and her health problems have also included her lungs now where she is on oxygen. As a baby she was deprived of oxygen which caused some mental delays. She is just the sweetest most special young woman.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this effort. This will be ongoing and I will send the squares whenever we fill up a box. To find out more information about this you can go to

Drop off squares anytime at my home 855 E 3575 N, North Ogden, UT.

Please let me know if you are interested in knitting classes or instruction, I would love to get something going. Maybe a new stitch of the month club or something.

A Huge Thank You to Knitters

Thank you so much to Gayle Ferguson and Barbara Porter for being our winning Charity Knitting Block donators. Each of these great ladies donated 22 squares this week. (Yes, this means Barbara has donated a total of 44 squares). I am struggling along with my 4 squares donated so far. But I am having fun learning and playing with new stiches.

Please comment on this post or contact me if anyone is interested in having a stitch of the week or month knitting class. We can do more advanced stitches or start with a beginners class. I think this would be fun if anyone is interested.

Thanks so much everyone, I am so excited to get the first box of squares shipped off to Africa for childrens blankets.
