We got a request from a special customer and her daughter for some knitted or crocheted hats and gloves/mittens for some kids in need at Lily's school. Please read Tracy's note below, and knit up an item or two to donate...Thanks! We're offering 15% OFF yarn purchases toward this project, just mention "hats for kids" when checking out!
Hello fellow knitters and crocheters! The holiday season is in full swing, and with it comes the cold weather. My daughter attends Shaver Elementary, in the Parkrose School District, and at a recent PTA meeting, I learned that 90% of the students are living at or below the poverty line.
There are many children in need of warm clothing, including hats and gloves. I am asking you to consider knitting up a hat or a pair of gloves, (or both!) Anything you can do, would be very much appreciated. Cheri has been kind enough to provide a collection bin at the knit shop that will be around through December and beginning of January.
If you don't feel like knitting or don't have the time, we would gladly welcome store bought hats and gloves. Thanks in advance to you all and happy holidays! - Tracy
