One of the ones I have decided to participate in is Caps to the Capital which is being run by Save The Children. The idea is to knit or crochet caps to warm a newborn's head and possibly help save their life. You can download an action kit at their site and some of the things it provides you with are patterns, answers to questions and a special tag for your hat. If you choose to make hats for this cause, I highly recommend you check out the site. The hats they request are much smaller than we are used to making - they recommend 9" - 11" in circumference and this really looks almost doll sized. The hats are small enough, that you could easily make several in a weekend. I made two this past weekend in addition to doing plenty of other things.
I also plan on making a scarf for the Red Scarf Project and some hats for the Soaring Eagles Project in addition to putting some items aside for next year's mailing to Dulaan. Go ahead and pick a project - the benefits are many. Not only will you be helping someone else, but you will feel better too. I know I do!
Blogger won't let me show you the high tech methods we have here for picking the next prize winner (we used a bag this time instead of a hat to hold the pieces of paper). The winner of the Sheep2Shoe kit is ...
In addition to being a fabulous person, she is an amazing spinner and I know she will do some special things with this kit. Congratulations Amanda!
