Charity Knitting February 6, 2008

A friend from my Mom’s group let me know about a new Charity Organization that is sending knitted items to women and children in Afghanistan.

The pattern can be found here, it’s a really quick knit. I made two last night while watching my “shows”

This one is 2 strands of Red Heart Pink Camo & a light pink Vanna’s Choice
P1010062

This is 3 strands of Red Heart Earth & Sky
P1010063

Here is a scarf I’m making for Jillie. It’s Skinny Scarf from Knitty Gritty on DIYNetwork. Using Classic Elite’s Premiere yarn. Almost done. It’s knit lengthwise and I have about 5 more rows to go.

I had a new niece born 10 days ago, so I made her a blankie and some little beanies. 🙂 I wish I was closer to actually see her!
