New Year-new needs!

Well,I have been praying for God to open my eyes to what the need is that my little group of ladies can help with by our crocheting,knitting and sewing.

I have received word from a number of sources that there is a need for hats,scarves and mittens for tweens and teens either in the foster care system (not in a foster home) or homeless. I believe that is real confirmation!

So we will be busy making these for the next winter season.! I have only made one pair of mittens and one pair of gloves in the past;so this will be good practice for me! I hope others will feel the same way!

In the meantime,dishcloths/washcloths and soapsavers can be made for donating this spring/summer. Generally cotton or a cotton blend yarn is used for cloths,so the two projects should not interfere with each other!

I am amazed how quickly God answered this particular prayer! He must see a great need and know that we can fulfill this!

I am also excited and thankful that our group is now on Lion Brand Yarn's website under their charitable group's listings! We are listed as "Handmade from the heart". I love Lion Brand! Yaay!
