Happy New Year to everyone who reads my Blog. I hope you all have a healthy and productive 2010 with time to spare to do the things that make YOU happy.
Have you had a look at our 2010 Calendar yet? Make sure you do, there are some great Charities that we will be helping this year and such a huge variety of items needed that I am sure you will find at least one to make and donate.
If every knit4charities Yahoo group member and everyone else who reads this, made at least one item this year, there would be many needy people's lives made just a little more comfortable. If you've been watching the News lately you will have heard that the number of homeless persons throughout Australia has grown tremendously over the past year. Knit4charities and other similar groups helping supply warm items for winter will be very much in demand, so if you can, plan on making some teenage and adult clothing such as jumpers, cardigans, ponchos and vests as well as the usual - childrens/babies clothing, beanies, scarves, fingerless gloves, socks, bedsocks, toys and blankets. Anything along these lines will be greatly appreciated.
I am currently working on a crochet baby blanket for one of our January Charity of the Month projects. Because of the holidays and being away from home it is taking me a lot longer than it normally would so I am getting a bit frustrated with it. After I finish the blanket I will make baby/premmie beanies for the same project and hopefully get to knit/crochet some squares for our other CotM project for January.
Time willing, my New Year's Resolution is to re-vamp this website -- give it a bit of a facelift and jazz it up a bit The knit4charities group will go through some major changes in 2010 but I cant tell you about them just yet.......... Stay Tuned!
