Does anyone here do knitting for charity. I have been going to a Tuesday craft group for over 20 years, and many of us have knitted many various charities all over the world. They include jumpers , vests for Africa, scarves gloves hats for Eastern Europe--hats for soldiers, tons more, I cannot remember them all.
Right now we are knitting for a local homeless society, blankets, hats, scaves, gloves,dog blankets. Also a premature baby unit, small blankets, tiny hats, tiny jackets, plus burial gowns, which are also sadly needed.
And we are making chickinis . !!
these are little jackets for chickens--honestly. My friend has a son in Gambia, and for some reason they pluck all the feathers off the chickens, and because it gets cold at night there, the chickens get really cold.
plus all sorts of soft toys, which we sell at the local hospice, all money raised goes to the Hospice.
I would love to know if anyone else does something like this. Many of us like to knit, but have noone to knit for, so this is ideal. We also do some crochet as well, which I teach. !
