Spreading warmth
Created By: KJ Herzog

Knitters all have 'extra' yarn, either from our own projects or from friends. After 'inheriting' a supply from an elderly lady, I had to either use the yarn or move to a larger apartment. I found a need on the Sioux Indian Reservations in South Dakota, knitting caps, mittens, scarves, blankets, sweaters for kids. Many of these items went to crisis centers, where kids were taken in an emergency without time to gather clothing items. This project has expanded as a few others decided to either add to my package or send items on their own. Shelters for abused women and children in Omaha, NE and Des Moines, IA have also received these items. Hundreds of caps and mittens have been donated over the years. Right now I am working ono 'next winter', and have probably 30 caps and a dozen mittens completed so far.



My immediate goal is to just keep someone a bit warmer.



My intermediate goal is to encourage more knitters to do the same.



My long-term hope is that someone that receives an item remembers it in the future and passes along a gift of warmth.



My immediate goal
