One of the women in our knitting group works with developmentally disabled adults in group homes. She recently proposed that we make things for them for Christmas so that each one could have a personal handmade gift. Both she and another woman in the group have a large stash of acrylic yarn we can use to make cowls, hats, mittens, and I have lots of fabric to make quilted pillows. We have been knitting and sewing up a storm, and having lots of fun doing it.
Below are a few of the items I have made so far:
Currently, I am working on another hat, and some washcloths to add to the effort. I really like making things for a local charity, especially one in which one of our members is personally invested.
Are you making gifts for charity this season? Please leave a comment and share what you have been working on.
Christmas countdown, 2 months to go....
