Knitting for Love

My story is very brief and quite simple. I learned to knit as a teenager and enjoyed knitting for myself and friends.

Later when I had my own family I started knitting again. I soon found out there were only so many sweaters, afghans, etc you could knit for those close to you.

I had seen articles in Guideposts magazine about their sweater project and sent for the pattern. That was several years ago and I have now sent them over 50 sweaters. I also learned of Project Linus which distributes blankets and have knitted several to donate to that organization.

I learned through a co-worker of a local woman who knitted and sent warm caps to eastern Europe with her daughter who is a nun.

I have enjoyed knitting for all of these causes and plan to continue to knit for them and any others I become aware of in the future.
