I was looking for a new charity knitting project as I have nearly finished one of my current projects which is for me. It was, I thought, about time I knitted something for some one in need. But I wanted the charity knitting to be a carry-with-me project – this means I actually get to work on it, if I ever have any down time.
I thought of knitting another Bear for the Mother Bear Project but first I checked out my favorite knitting charity. As you can tell from the banner, it is Afghans for Afghan. I visited their site at the right time as they just announced that they want socks, mittens and hats for babies and children. These are great carry-with-me projects and I get to knit more socks. A double win for Afghans for Afghan.
What’s more I can knit in wool and I am currently on a wool jag. I have just the yarn in my stash to use up for this project. Does that make it a quadruple win?
