A bit more time

Now that all of your gift knitting has been finished and delivered (even if it was wrapped up with the needles and a promise to be completed soon) we hope that you'll have time to knit for others that need your help.We collected underwear for under privileged elementary school children in our area earlier this month; and when Julie delivered these items to the schools, she learned from the principals that what the kids still need is mittens and gloves.  Without proper protection for their hands, the children can't play outside at recess.bulky-mittens-03We've found over 400 FREE patterns available on Ravelry that you could use to create a pair or two.  We hope that you'll take some time in the next several weeks to knit or crochet a pair of mittens or gloves for the little ones in Fort Collins that need warm hands.Julie will be collecting mittens and gloves for children ages 5- 12 until Friday January 15th, and to make this a little more fun, we will offer you 20% off a single item for your donation.We know that your time is precious, and we hope that as the new year starts you may have a few spare hours to make a difference that will warm your heart as well as some tiny fingers.
