What We CAN do

Yes, I know Thanksgiving is over but the spirit of giving of ourselves should never stop.

Case in point is the wonderful slideshow link following. . . My friend Sue is the owner of Lovely Yarns in Hampden in Baltimore City. She’s had the shop for several years and it’s a wonderful place to visit, sit & knit, or just hang out. Her clientele and friends decided to knit 500 hats and give them away! The recipient is a local school each year. Here’s the slide show: http://www.flickr.com/photos/500hatproject/show/

I did not participate – Just had to share and brag up my friend! Last year, I did knit several infant hats for Save the Children’s “Knit One Save One” campaign. It was fast, easy, used up stash, and very fulfilling.   http://www.savethechildren.org/newsroom/2009/caps-KOSO.html

teeny beenies for newborns around the world

Thinking about doing something can give you warm fuzzies, but actually doing it, gives them to someone else! ♥

  1. Those hats are too cute!

  2. Sue and Lovely Yarns did a great job! Mine are just quick knits for important life saving of newborns, so nothing fancy there. Heart tug is there though. ♥ ~Anne
