Knitting Outreach Programs

Many of us are involved in one outreach project or another with our knitting.

I'm fond of Afghans for Afghans, several persons knit for the premature babies at the local hospitals, etc. One of our knitters in the group brought up another outreach project, which many of you may already know about it- The Red Scarf Project. There will be more info at next Wednesday's gathering, but if you can't make it, here's a website with more information, The Red Scarf Project.

It's not mandatory to participate, but we'd like to encourage whoever would like to do so, to knit along with us. Laurel at The Yarn Shoppe and Jo at The Fiber Underground have loads of fibers and colors available, so be sure to check it all out.

I've also asked someone in our group to make up a "button" from our group so it can be posted on the RFP's blog pages.

Finally, if you have a favorite outreach program you participate in, and it's not listed on our blog page, please let me know - I'll post it for you!
