Caps, Scarves and Mittens for children

In response to a need notice by our Catholic Inner-city school principals I've been coordinating a group of ladies to make caps, scarves and mittens for our Catholic inner city school children. After 6 months of work we donated 185 items. We're now working toward another donation in late '04.

Realizing that people often develop a life-long love for knitting and crocheting at a very early age I've begun working with 5th grade students. A dozen or so are very excited about learning the basic stitches. They've also discovered the circular type 'looms' and are trying their luck at making caps for their friends. Often Grandma is also a help to them becaue Mom never learned how. Shortly school will be over for the summer but I hope to pick up with them again in early September.
