Knitting for the Children at Pine Ridge

Finally!  A summer’s worth of knitting has been washed, dried, tagged and is ready to mail to the children of Pine Ridge.  Every fall, there is a special drive to gather enough items to give each of the K-12 school children a warm hat, scarf and mittens.  This year, I made 5 large teenage scarves, 9 children’s scarves …
…4 hoods with neckwarmers …
…3 large teenage hats, 1 child’s hat, 2 ear warmers, and 2 pair of mittens
Now, they’re on the way to the Pine Ridge children for the long cold winter in South Dakota.

  1. How wonderful. What a wonderful contribution. I can’t even imagine the hours, and love, you put into making those.

  2. Fabulous! And those winters in North AND South Dakota are surely long and very cold! They will be appreciated, I think, when the snow is halfway to the knees and the sun is not shining! You are good to do so much. Do you need any yarn?

    1. Thank you for the offer of yarn but I have a lot on hand. I take full advantage of JoAnn’s and Michael’s coupons and ask for it for Mothers, Day, birthday and Christmas.
