Knitting for Charity - Christmas Update

At our last Knitters Guild meeting of the year, everyone brought their handmade knitted/crocheted items to be donated to Charity.   The items filled a long table with mitts, hats, scarves, socks, sweaters, blankets.   So many beautiful items were donated.  Our Christmas Guild project this year was to knit for a local charity  - Links2Care.  All the items will be distributed into the various Christmas Hampers Links2care distribute to families in need this Christmas.   Check my previous post on our Guild's Christmas project.

I also, as well as other Guild members, took part in another charity program  "Blanket Halton"  This year the program donated over 120 handmade blankets for three local agencies.    The clipping from our local newspaper shows the amazing mountain of blankets that will be distributed to those in need this winter.
