Happiness is….

..watching our stockpile grow!! I am in awe!  Thank you so very, very much to everyone of you who is sending in donations for our 1st Summer Stockpile. I stopped at the post office this morning and picked up our latest donation from Claudia in Indiana. Thank you Claudia for knitting and donating 46 ITEMS!

Our stockpile count is now at 165 ITEMS!!  I have updated our counter to the left and have set a goal of 300 items. Let’ see if we can meet or surpass this number ! I know we can do it!

Here are photos of the items Claudia has sent in:

8 gorgeous scarves!

13 Sets of Hats & Mittens!

8 baby hats & a beautiful blanket!

Please keep those fingers flying everyone! We have many, many people to donate to when the cold weather sets in. I’m proud to say we will again be donating to Hats for the Homeless in New York City, the Samaritan Shelter in Manchester, CT, and the Bridgeport Rescue Mission in Bridgeport, CT.

This year we will be donating for the first time to The Appalachia Project which serves those living in extreme poverty in West Virginia.

I’m currently knitting up hats and mittens myself. I will not stop – there is a never ending need. Whatever you can donate to our cause will be appreciated more than you know! Even one hat or scarf can make a huge difference.

To send in an item or a donation of yarn please email knittinggiving@hotmail.com.

Enjoy the weekend everyone!
