Charity Knitting

January 16, 2007

I heard about this from Cara’s blog, but if you want to get in on it too, go over to Kate’s and check it out.  It had been a long time since I knit for charity.  Actually, I’ve never knit for charity, I’ve only crocheted for charity, and it used to be the only thing I really did.  I used to crochet hats and scarves to sell for our Relay for Life team.   I decided it was time to  do something good for the soul.

I made both of those last night.  (Sorry for the blurry pic, the light just wouldn’t work with me today.)  Since I’m a childhood cancer survivor myself, this is a particularly important cause to me.  The left hat is Lion Brand Homespun and the right one is Bernat Eye Lash that my dear friend Roma gave me.  I remember a time when Homespun was the Bee’s Knees of yarn for me.  How times have changed….  It is incredibly soft, and I really enjoyed knitting these up.  Hopefully I get another done tonight.

I’m also donating a hand dyed skein to the prizes.  Kate is compiling knitted goodies to hand out to the hat knitters.  The hats take a little over an hour and are well worth it.  If you live in Eugene, I’d even be willing to ship them for you.  So go check it out.

    I’ve done several more now. It’s been very satisfying to knit something quick and easy. Plus it feels good to use up some of the yarn that moved all the way from Flagstaff to Eugene.
