With the tornadoes ripping through Joplin Missouri, OK, etc, the devastation down there is incredible. I can't imagine going through such a thing. There is so much need for food, clothing, toiletries, etc that, it can be a little overwhelming as to where to start. Believing in the power of 1 makes a big difference. I have decided to take the month of June and make things just to go down there. Not sure how much I'll get down but, whatever it is I know it'll be appreciated.
I have made one sweater called Simple Knitting Pattern for children's Pullover. I can't find the link to the pattern at the moment. It's made from the top down in one piece and the sides are sewn together. The 2nd sweater I am working on is the 10th Anniversary Knit for Kids Sweater. These sweaters were made before I decided to send to Joplin or OK. I went to Joann's and got 4 Sugar'N Cream cotton to make washcloths with. I made one washcloth using the Seed Stitch Washcloth pattern and the 2nd one I am using the Laguna Beach Washcloth. A free pattern from the Lion Brand site.
Will post pics when I get a few things finished. I am not a very fast knitter but, I will do the best I can do. I found a couple of drop off locations in OK with addresses but not for Joplin yet.
This is going to be ongoing for quite a while. These people have lost everything. It's so sad.
Until next time...
