    One Dog Woof Talks Charity Patterns

    ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof is one of the most brilliant minds in the blogging world. You loved her Humpback Whale, which nearly broke the internet. Now ChiWei is here to talk about her two charity patterns for Yarn Heroes - the Millbrook Slouch Hat and the Millbrook Chunky Mittens. These are great projects to make for charity, and they obviously make the basis of one cool Yarn Hero costume as well!

    Giving back and being a "do-gooder" - an interview with Cassie May of Little Red Window

    Happy Thanksgiving, fiber fans! This giving season, we are very thankful to the untold thousands (millions?) of charity crafters across the country making comforting items for those in need. We're especially thankful that Yarn Heroes has helped us find and reach some of those people, as well as give us a chance to show off our favorite bloggers! This Thursday, we're talking to Cassie May of Little Red Window. Cassie is best known for her unbelievably creative baby hats! So when it came time to "suit up" as a Yarn Hero, Cassie let her daughter "Super V!" have the spotlight. Have you ever seen a more adorable super hero?

    LB: Cassie - you design possibly the cutest baby hats on planet Earth. We were SO grateful that you decided to join Yarn Heroes and use your influence and creativity to make a more giving world. Can you tell us a little bit about why you got involved?

    Little Red Window: I think the wonderful thing about knitters is that we all do it because we love it and I really believe you can feel that love in each stitch. Sure, we could buy hats or scarves or mittens and donate them to people in need, but I think that the people who receive our donations appreciate handmade items. They can feel the love we put in and they understand the time and attention that went into making something by hand. And they know that someone really cares about them.

    Charity Crocheting with Tamara Kelly of Moogly Blog!

    We hope you have been having even a fraction of the fun that WE have been having with Yarn Heroes, Lion Brand's campaign to inspire knitters, crocheters, and crafters of all kinds to make comforting items for charity. The X-Men have Wolverine, and we have MOOGLY, who should need absolutely no introduction. But in case you're a yarn maven who has been living under a rock, Moogly (aka Tamara Kelly) is one of the guiding lights of the online crochet community, as well as one of the most generous souls you will ever meet.

    We got a chance to catch up with Tamara to talk about her approach to charity crafting, and we are so thrilled to share her insights!

    LB: Greetings, Tamara! We were so thrilled that you were one of the first people to sign up for Yarn heroes! Can you tell us a little bit about why you got involved?

    Moogly: I love how charity focused the crochet community is! And it doesn’t have to be hats for babies or blankets for the homeless or any of the usual things – you can find a way to help almost any organization you care about, even if it’s a yarn bomb to help raise awareness!
