Homeless Veterans & Families

Hi, <My name is Gilberta Randazzo and a member of the legion,
last year I started knitting and crocket Hats and scarfs for the homeless. My goal was 100 sets, but at the end of the year I had done 117 sets of hats and scarfs plus 25 fun scarfs for the batter shelter for women and a lot more to give away.
The hard part is finding donations for yarn, or just yarn, I even wrote Lion Brand but I got no reply.
I love knitting, I started for this next year and hopefully I will make more, I have till the first week of November, they are passed out before Thanksgiving.

Attached you will find some picture of my hats and scarfs.

Thank you for reading this
