My first afghan of 2007! Victory Junction Gang Camp is a really neat place for children who are ill or under privileged. After lots of fun at the camp, each child is sent home with a homemade afghan and a homemade teddy bear. This afghan hasn’t been shipped quite yet, but it will be soon.
The second batch!
Afghans for Afghans is an amazing charity that was founded shortly after 9/11. I made a few hats for them last year before Crafting for a Cause got started.
Earlier this year, they had a big hat drive for Afghan children, and I was able to finish these 5 blue hats, all in 100% wool.
As the year progresses, I will be working on “fun scarves” that I’m going to donate en masse to a local homeless women’s shelter. I figure these women could use trendy, pretty, cheerful accessories. This was the first batch of 5 that I completed.
This hat & scarf went to Dulaan as a set.
