At this point, we are most in need of wool socks and mittens for ages 14-21 years (grades 7-12).
We won't be able to send all the hats because we must send a balance of garments for the recipients. The sponsoring organization that pays for the shipping and that handles the distribution specifies what they need for their constituents, and we fill their order in a sense. We have received an abundance of beautiful hats -- thank you! -- and hats that are not shipped this month will be held for the next campaign, possibly for NGO Aschiana. We will always keep you updated via our website and this email list.
The second batch -- with priority for socks and mittens -- will go out at the end of January.
I finished a pair of mittens last night (they are wet right now; I will post a photo when they are more presentable) and have started on another in hopes of finishing in a couple of days.
Thanks, everybody, for doing so much! We have almost 2 weeks left, so. . .knit! crochet! make stuff!
