This week’s knitting-for-peace project brought a lot of satisfaction….because I finished a project. (Any knitter can tell you that there’s an unparalleled joy that comes from weaving in that last little bit of yarn on a piece….then you get to hold it up and marvel at your new creation! 🙂 ) These socks, along with the red hat I made last week, will be packed up and mailed to The Ships Project in the very near future.
As soon as I finished the socks, I started looking ahead in Knitting for Peace for the next organization listed. Unfortunately, the next on the list seems to have disappeared from the internet. I figured I would move to the next on the list and continue checking into the mystery of the vanishing charity. So, that lands us at Elegant Stitches, a yarn shop in Miami that also provides tons of knitted items to a variety of charities. The website has free knitting patterns for some of the items needed for charity and a list of current projects and needs….I’ve picked a baby hat and a scarf to complete for Elegant Stitches. I love that they reach out to several groups around the world with their hand-knit donations. Today, I buy yarn! (Which just happens to be one of my very most favorite activities in all of the universe!)
