it's a go!

Yes, indeed, word has just come down that the next campaign is to be another youth campaign, for children aged 7-14. We've been asked to send fewer blankets, as they take up too much space. From Ann's announcement, "The emphasis will be on wool sweaters, vests, mittens, and socks for girls and boys, 7-14 years. We need to go easy on blankets and hats." The deadline will be sometime in March, so this is a nice leisurely project that can wait until after holiday madness subsides.

I've been finishing up things that got put aside when they weren't done in time for previous deadlines. I just finished a pair of mittens last night (no picture yet; they're still wet). And I have another single mitten waiting for a mate, then a sock that's almost finished and wants a buddy.

In the next couple of days I will put together some small packages of 3 or 4 skeins of worsted yarn to give away on this blog, each box containing enough for 2 pairs of socks (that also makes 3 pairs of mittens, or 1 pair of socks or 1 pair of mittens, or stripes in a sweater or a vest). This time I'll post pictures. Again, random drawing, no charge for shipping.

Watch this space. . .

Great - I have some socks partly done that I started for the Youth Campaign - will get back to them as soon as I finish Christmas knitting.

This is great news. I think it's lovely that we get the chance to make things for others during a season honouring peace and goodwill.
