Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

I knit stocking caps and donate them to Sharing and Caring Hands in Minneapolis MN. I do not belong to an organizaiton, I knit while watching TV, especially baseball games.

I solicite unwanted yarn and make stocking caps. My goal is 200 hats a year. I have been doing this for several years now (8 or 10).

I advertised in my company's want ads asking for unwanted yarn. I got only one response but it was a big one. He said his mother had died and left behind some yarn and asked if I wanted it. Thinking it was a bag or two, I said sure. It turned out to be over 465 skeins of yarn. I'm working on the last two skeins now. That was a least 3 years ago.

Another knitter knits scarves and donate them to Sharing and Caring Hands also.

If you know of anyone who has unwanted yarn laying around, send them my way. I can put that yarn to good use.

Everyone up here in our cold Minnesota winters can use a nice warm hat. I make them on a 16 inch circular needle (long tube) put the ends together and add a pompom. They make very warm hats.
