Charity Knitting.......




It has been brought to my attention the huge need for warm clothing for children in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union so I have been knitting sweater sets for them. The 3 sets pictured above are made of 100% wool, and will fit children ages 3 - 4 years. This endeavor has brought me so much pleasure, and just knowing that some child will benefit from my knitting is a blessing I can't even begin to put into words. I plan to always have something for 'the kids' on my needles at all times and I will go back and forth between my personal knitting and knitting for the kids. In that way, I don't get bored doing the same project for too long. For information on CIC knitting, here is the link: http://stitchesofviolet.blogspot.com/2004/11/what-is-cic.html I also have a couple more caps knit up, and a pair of socks, but didn't take pictures of them. I have another sweater and a pair of socks on the needles and hope to have them done in the next few days so that I can get a package mailed off next week. What a blessing to know that something I make will be truly appreciated and that a child will be warmer because of my efforts.
