The holidays are a season for giving, so why not use your knit and crochet skills for charity.
Here's the deal:
Everyone who participates in our December knitalong should email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name, blog (if any), and the # of items you pledge to make for charity between Dec. 1st and by Dec. 31st.
Here's what we hope to accomplish with our CHARITY KNITALONG:
100 hats for Stitches from the Heart.
25 preemie sweaters for Stitches from the Heart.
25 hats for Knitzilla.
Hilda - 2 preemie hats
Marisa - 3 preemie hats
Terry - 10 preemie hats
Thea - 10 preemie hats, 1 sweater, 3 knitzilla hats
The special charity knitting button will be available soon. We'll also have a button for those that meet or exceed their pledges.
The charities I'm focusing on are Stitches from the Heart and Knitzilla. But feel free to send your items to other charities.
We have a $25 gift certificate for the most charity items knitted or crocheted (we'll need a picture of your items to share).
Keep checking back for updates. Thanks for getting involved!
If you're in the LA area and would like to knit with others, That Yarn Store will be having a charity knitting event (including reps from Stitches and Knitzilla and a preemie hat knitalong) on Dec. 9th from 11-1.
Check out Bev's Country Cottage for preemie measurements and patterns.
