The vest shown is a before dyeing and after dyeing with blue kool-aid.
In the sewing room shake up, a lot of forgotten wool yarn was exposed. A lot. I've been knitting away on items for Wool-aid. Here is their mission statement:
Wool-Aid is a community of knitters and crocheters who create warm woolen garments for children who live in the coldest climates and have the least access to resources.
Our mission is to provide the very neediest children with wool socks, sweaters, vests, mittens, and hats, as well as wool baby blankets for newborns.
We work with organizations that have a focus on helping children and that are not religion-based. These organizations distribute the warm woolen garments handcrafted by Wool-Aid volunteers to children who would otherwise suffer from extreme coldBecause the request is for THICK woolen items I have been doubling the yarn. Boy, Howdy! is this a great stash buster. To date I have finished:
- 4 vests
- 3 pairs of socks
- 4 pairs of mittens
- 6 hats
- 1 baby blanket
