Hello, how was your weekend? Mine was quite productive. First of all, the second blanket was finished, photographed, and donated to the Phoenix youth shelter today.
It’s made with the squares from the yarn store in the Valley, and a few Knitco members helped stitching it up.
Secondly, I delivered the donated yarn to two Shannex residential houses. One is called Caritas, it’s a retirement residence for the Sisters of Charity, located on the Mount Saint Vincent University ground. The other one is Parkland at the Lakes in Dartmouth. Both have knitting groups that meet regularly, and knitters there make prayer shawls, hats, scarfs, and mittens that are later donated to the local charitable organizations like Out of the Cold and Bryony house.
I am also proud to say that I didn’t go to the yarn store to buy a set of large needles and didn’t immediately cast on a hat and a pair of mittens with that bulky wool to check what pattern would work best with this yarn. It is an accomplishment of not spending all weekend on knitting related stuff.
See, I told you it was productive.
