Busy fingers for you and me... maybe it's time for some charity? I thought I'd take a moment before the totally crazy holiday knitting begins, to tell you all about a couple of charity projects that Lint and you can take part in.
Firstly, we are still collecting hats and mittens for orphans in Kazikstahn. Infant through child sizes are greatly appreciated. This is a great way to use up your extra yarn and help out some little heads and hands. We'll keep accepting these donations through February.
The Busy B Team is still working hard at putting together hundreds of Barbie Doll kits to give away this year. What they need from you is a blanket size 7" X 9." It can be any yarn, any stitch. (Another great yarn user-upper!)
Lint is part of the Mercury's annual auction for charity. You will have your chance to bid on an amazing package of gifts certificates that include private lessons with me, finishing services and $100! Check in out at www.portlandmercury.com.
Last but surely not least, we have just started participating ing the Annual Joy Drive benefiting the Starlight Children's Foundation. This foundation distributes toys of all kinds to seriously ill children year-round. One of the items on their wish list is knitting kits. Have some extra yarn and needles? Maybe you could help out a little darling who wants to learn to knit. You can drop off this and any other unwrapped toy donation to Lint. For more info go to www.starlight.org.
Thanks to all of you who find the time to give to these and other charities. And thanks for supporting our efforts in giving back to this amazing community.
