2019 Charity Knitting
Sue Tyvoll provided an update on the 76 hats donated by our group. They are heading to an orphanage in Kenya, Africa, for children from newborn to three years old. The team leaves the 25th and gets back on April 8. Sue is looking forward to sharing another update with us soon. As she said, “It’s really amazing that we can bless little children in Africa with our knitting skills!”
Lori Patterson (and Lou) from Abstract Fiber shared their yarn. It’s been a busy year since she purchased the company from Susan!
