Last Friday was the annual Hook and Needler holiday get-together, which was held at my house. It was a little different this year because not only did we have our ornament swap, we also had taken part in a group-wide charity project knitting winter items for the women and children of a local homeless shelter. When I first announced the idea at the end of the summer, I never expected such an overwhelming response! Between all of us there was:
15 pairs of mittens
1 pair of socks
And one child will be the lucky recipient of a handmade stuffed elephant.
Thank you my knit and crochet friends. This is one of my favorite reasons to be part of this group!
