Keeping Kids Warm

A colleague and I started a group of knitters/crocheters at our company who create beautiful items to donate to local children in need, infants through high school, in the St. Paul/Minneapolis, MN area.
The 'Keeping Kids Warm' group meet monthly to share project ideas/patterns, sew on labels, give advice or help, and support each other. We have a team of 15+ on one campus, and a team of 20+ at our corporate headquarters, that include veteran knitters/crocheters and newbies. All our yarn, tools, advice, time, and labels are donated by group members.
Keeping Kids Warm is a wonderful way to connect co-workers in very large company who might not otherwise know each other; and even better has been everyone's ongoing and productive commitment to creating hats, blankets, scarves, mittens, and sweaters for children who really need them in the Minnesota cold weather. There's a strong dedication to making practical items, with a keen sense of what kids will be sure to wear :) We love to see the variety of patterns, yarn, and ideas generated, and connected, by our mutual love of yarn, creating, and kids.
In the past month, the group created over 90 items that have been donated to local children in need - keeping their heads, hands, and hearts warm.
