On Knitting for the Homeless:

Well I got the bag of hats, scarves, and mittens topped off. I did a major knit-a-thon on Sunday, and from the time I got the yarn a few weeks ago until now, I have a grand total of (Drum roll please!)

19 hats
14 short scarves and 1 cowl
17 pairs of mittens

I did have to replace my old double points because after making so many pair of mittens and socks with them over the last few years I wore a dent in the wood, making a collar around each end.

I still have more yarn and I do have to get more of them to the shelter because there is a turnover, but it is a good start for this Winter.

I wish I had a picture I could show you of the colorful pile, but until I have a new computer that will have to wait.
