November Is My Giving Back With Knitting and Crochet Month

I want to make a goal for November. For the first two weeks I will be making chemo hats for cancer patients through our knitting guild. The last two weeks will be for making hats and booties for preemies to give to a local hospital. I have some yarn left over from baby items or yarn I got from house sales that I would like to use up for a good cause.

I encourage you that if you have never done charity knitting/crochet before that you get on board. You can get in contact with a hospital that has a maternity ward and see if they accept items for preemie babies. There might be a local cancer center near you that would love your contribution of chemo hats. It is so rewarding and enjoyable. The items knit/crochet up fast and you can use those scarps that are just lying around. You could form a group to do it together and use up each others scraps or you could do it by yourself. Every chemo hat, preemie hat or pair of booties counts.

So think about joining me for the month of November. I will keep you posted on my progress.
