Our annual drive for warm hand knit clothing has begun. We donate every December to our American Veterans homes and hospitals. They need hats, scarves, blankets, and mittens. We also like to share some baby items for the Abused Mothers with small children. This could be infant size hats and wraps in all sizes.
In the past, we also sent warm items to St Joseph’s Indian School in South Dakota. The children love to get something that is hand made like a hat or scarf to keep them warm.
If you can knit up just one or two items, we will make sure they get to some very needy folks. It’s a great way to use up some yarn remnants and clean out the closet. They are especially great if a note from the knitter is attached with joyous, holiday sentiments.
Won’t you take an afternoon to brighten someone’s spirit and warm their cold heads and necks? We thank you for your time and energy, and sharing spirits. Send donations to address below by the end of December, 2014.

We just returned from our annual Craft and Hobby trade show in Anaheim, California, and WOW– it was 4 full days packed with a lot of fun as we were able to see all the new crafts coming out this fall. We met a lot of new visitors at our booth and a special one, Deborah Norville who is now, a new Knitting Board owner. Deborah stopped by our booth to enjoy our 48″ X 60″ Berry Burst afghan. It was knit on our 28″ Knitting Board with the Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky which is a super chunky, soft yarn and makes a great cozy afghan. This yarn is great for Knitting Boards as it works up really quickly. You may want to try this for your next cozy afghan in any size.
