At the beginning of this month, I made a call out to all knitters and crocheters to donate to Project Winter Warmth. Started by high school student Breanna, Project Winter Warmth is charity effort that’s collecting hats, mittens and scarves for those in need in the Kenosha area. Find out more about how to participate on the blog. There’s a prize package involved. 🙂
And now on with the updates! I know we’ve all been busy knitting for charity, but I wanted to make sure that I showed you how many generous donations we’ve received so far. Thank you so much to everyone who has participated so far! We have so many kind, generous and talented readers!
It was difficult to find the space to show off all of the stuff, but here are a few pictures:
Seriously how cute is that bear scarf set! There’s a hat in there too. 🙂 And look at this cute cupcake hat! Adorable!
Thank you again to everyone who has sent us donations so far! Remember, we’ll be collecting items on behalf of Project Winter Warmth until Nov. 28. After that we’ll choose one lucky winner to receive a $50 prize basket from AllFreeKnitting just for participating! All donations will be delivered to Breanna after Nov. 28 and will be distributed to various charities, mainly the Meals on Wheels program, The INNs Homeless Program, and any local schools where children are in need of these winter items. There are no yarn or pattern requirements for these donations – use whatever you have on hand!
