Our Church began a Christmas Scarf Project after the storm Katrina. There were 100 people transported from New Orleans to West Virginia. They needed scarves and hats. Our generous knitters and crocheters answered the call. We had more than a 100 items in a VERY short time, so we kept the extra to give away at Christmas. No one thought this would become a yearly project. Well it did:) Since that time wonderful people in our church and friends have given hand knitted scarves, hats, purses and sweaters to the project.
Each year our items help keep people of our area warm from the winter chill.
This year we were given 172 items along with donated yarn and money to buy yarn. One lady makes the cards to put with each item.
I'll share some of the scarves in a day or so.
Blessings to my blogger friends.
