Knit Together: Project Easter

And now, before I forget, let me introduce:
Knit Together's Project Easter...

It's crazy to even mention, but Easter will be here before we know it. Yikes! With that close to mind, Knit Together will be kicking off our Project Easter on February 1st. Please consider joining us as we knit, crochet, or quilt baby blankets and afghans for the children at Hope Haven, a homeless shelter in Texas that provides food, clothing, support and ministry to struggling mothers and their precious little ones.

Blankets can be any size, shape, or color, but please - as you plan, think cute and cozy! (This one was so soft I had trouble keeping Maebelline off my lap as I knitted.) We're trying for 25 blankets for 25 children. Surely we can do that, right? The shelter is currently housing several mothers with boys and girls ages newborn to elementary school, so blue, pink, and gender-neutral blankets would be wonderful.

Be creative! Whip up a favorite blanket or quilt, or craft along with us. I'll soon be posting my knit pattern for the Knit Together: Project Easter for any knitting gals needing a little inspiration (or a black-and-white nudge). Crochet and quilting patterns will follow, too.

It's my hope that you'll consider joining us as we get sweet items into the hands of children who so desperately need a little handmade warmth and love!

Happy creating!
