fullsizerenderThis summer, my younger daughter and I discovered a charity which accepts all kinds of cold weather items for their children on a Lakota Indian reservation in South Dakota.  They have very severe winters and say they are under-served at this location, grateful for anything hand-knit or crocheted that will help keep the children warm.  Unlike most of the charities we support, they accept not only acrylic but also wool and wool blend items and are currently trying to get enough scarves and mittens to supply each of their children in grades K-12.  In August, we mailed some items I had made…four hats, four pr. mittens and two scarves.

In addition, my daughter contributed 11 hats, 12 pr mittens and 10 scarves.

As of this date, they have collected enough hats but still need lots of scarves and mittens.  Today, I’ll be mailing 5 beautiful pairs of mittens from my daughter …

We’ll continue to work on items for this project until they reach their goal, hopefully by November 1.
