In the Loop KNITTING LOVE Free Pattern It's a Wrap

Love Through Charity

This Valentine's Day has me thinking about how much more love we need in the world today, about how much more we can reach out into our communities to lift and support. For us knitters, that is SUPER easy to do! Giving and friendship is knit into every stitch we work; caring and understanding are wrapped into the fibers we give.

This Feb. 14, I encourage you to reach out just a little more to your families and friends, and to your neighbors and non-neighbors.

  1. Contact your local yarn store (LYS) to see if they have any community projects going on. At my own LYS, knitters are coming in on Thursday afternoons to knit for Family Tree, a program for runaway or homeless youth.
  2. Knitters for Newtown is a new organization started by Sharon of Yarnista/Three Irish Girls in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy to make afghans for the families.
  3. Everyone is familiar with Project Linus because the organization has touched SO many lives! This is a great one to get involved with!
  4. Coming from a family of military members, Warmth for Warriors has a special place in my heart, and I love sending in hats and socks.
  5. Neonatal units and cancer centers do seek hats, socks, blankets and more, so contact them via your local hospital to find out how you can donate.

These are just a few ideas. I am sure there are many more opportunities closer to home. One hand at a time, one smile at a time, one stitch at a time -- we can reach out and bring so much love to others.
