Blankets, Babies, and Buttons
A few weeks ago on Ravelry, Mokihana said her east side group needed yarn donations for blankets; they knit for sick children, chemo patients, hospice, etc. The west side knitters took this as a cue to clear out their stashes. I also needed some yarn for premie hats so I volunteered to the the "dumping ground" for both charities. And I do mean "dumping ground"! Even after consolidating, packing bags and boxes as tight as possible, and pulling out enough yarn for a year (or longer) of premie hats, our car was bursting at the seams! The back seat was full of 5 large garbage bags and a couple big shopping bags.
And the back was full with a big box and another trash bag or two.
These are Karen's; he'll give them to her at Westside Wednesday. I think she'll like them. And if she doesn't, then I'll just have to add them to my collection!
