How could I have not know about this? I would really prefer to give locally if possible, and knitting for local people is perfect for me. I may have given a hat to this project, because I donated a hat to Heartstrings, one of the 4 local yarn shops sponsoring the event.
Next year! There is a wonderful blanket in the current issue (Winter 2006/07) knit simple magazine.
Good intentions without follow-through are useless, but I'm sure I can manage one little blanket - maybe more.
The Jesus Center in Chico fed over 100 families last night, and gave them all hand knitted items as gifts. I'm no Christian, but the Jesus Center does this very good thing every Christmas. It's worth supporting.
