I have a ton to post about, and more squares to show you, but I will wait on that until tomorrow. I have been contacted by a fellow blogger and asked if I would please put out a plea to American knitters (the few that come by here at least). It seems that the Soaring Eagles Project is about 100 items (for children ages 4-12) short of the amount they need by December 18th.
This is from the Soaring Eagles site:
“Please knit hats, beanies, headbands, mittens, whatever you would like to help our cause.The pieces will be given out to students in a grade level assembly on December 20th or 21st.Time from the 18th to the assembly allows us time to assign each child a gift.
Students range in ages 4 – 12. Sizes vary (4T size all the way up to adult size 5th graders). Types of yarn: please stick to cotton or acrylic or superwash wool. Wool is too hard to care for and I really don’t think that the students’ parents/guardian would be careful not to dry a wool hat.”
If you can manage, at this busy time of year, to make a hat, headband etc. for the project, then please head over to the blog or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
