I started knitting when I was ten years old, and two years later I was making my first project for a child in need.
Since that time, knitting to help children who are in need of warm clothing has turned into a passion, and something I love doing, and feel strongly about. Life is hard enough even under better circumstances than these children are facing. Giving Children something warm to wear or use or donating to help these children or to those who knit to help these children makes a difference.

Your blog looks great and I am looking forward to reading more of it. I knit and have thought about knitting for those in need but I have never investigated it in much detail. Will be great to read about what you are doing!
It is definitely worth it !
Hello, I am buying yarn for my grandmother to crochet a blanket. Where you happy with the simply wool worsted yarn purchase? Is it pretty soft? I really wanted to buy the Cascade 128 Superwash – ECRU #817 but she needs 10 skeins and they are $14 bucks each!! I thought this might be a good alternative. Thoughts? Thanks!
I haven’t actually knit with the Simply Wool worsted yet, so I don’t know how soft it will be once knit up and washed. Though comparing the 128 superwash and the Simply Wool, they are two totally different types of yarn. The Simply Wool is a bit of a rougher yarn. If I were going to be making a blanket, I would choose the KnitPicks Wool of the Andes or Wool of the Andes Tweed. It is a less expensive yarn with a lot more color options. To get enough for a blanket you would need 12 balls (I know its a lot). The Wool of the Andes is $1.99 a ball and the Wool of the Andes Tweed is $3.49 a ball.
