How're you all doing? A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that, in lieu of a knit list this year, I was possibly going to focus on hats and mittens to donate. Well we're definitely doing that. I have been tumbling the idea around in my head since then and poking around the internet to figure out where to donate, which you would have thought would be easy but it really wasn't. Way too many options. How do you choose a favourite cause? There are so many great organizations doing amazing work out there. I finally decided to go with Nellies, here in Toronto. They do amazing work and it's an organization, that I, my friends and my colleagues have donated to in the past. Nellie's provides shelter, education and advocacy to women and children who have and are experiencing oppressions such as violence, poverty and homelessness.
My goal this year is to knit 40 finished objects - hats and mittens to donate and I would love to have your help. The shelter is able to accept any size from new born to adult sized items and you are more than welcome to use anything in your stash.
I'm sure you're going to see many progress shots through the year and I'm going to keep you guys posted on whatever patterns I'm using. For now I'm focusing on these one's from my Ravelry favourites which, conveniently, are all free:
