Care to Knit

Knitting for loved ones is so gratifying, but I am thrilled to announce that I have founded a Care to Knit chapter for those of us who enjoy knitting for other good causes as well.  We meet one evening per month and have been busy knitting scarves, teddy bears, and caps for chemo patients and premature babies.  We are also working on blankets for wounded warriors and veterans in need.  More about that here.

Many thanks to Shelley, Lori, Anita, Barbara, Joann, Judy, Kathy and Mary for all their efforts!

Care to Knit, Inc. is a non-profit organization based in New York.  Its mission is to provide hand-knitted and crocheted items to those in need in hospices, shelters, nursing homes and hospitals.
