Mittens, Hats, Scarves, and Yarn

It is that time of year again! We are collecting mittens, hats, and scarves for Walker School, WaldoCAP Head Start, Belfast Soup Kitchen, and “Hats with Hugs”.

Brr, it’s cold …
Hats and mittens were delivered to both Walker School and WaldoCAP Early Head Start, and they both express their appreciation. Jo Peavey will take some hats for the soup kitchen, and Sue Pelletier will be taking small hats for newborns to local hospitals. Thank you everyone for your donations.

Simple 2-needle mitten patterns: 3-4 yrs,  4-6 yrs., & 6-8 yrs.
A simple pattern for hats can be found here. .
Another Stockinette Watch cap pattern.

We collect yarn and needles for Jen Gunderman who delivers these to organizations assisting New Mainers transitioning to life in Maine. They in turn make hats and mittens for other refugees who are in camps awaiting permission to be allowed into other countries to begin making new lives for themselves and their families.

Several knitters are getting together informally to knit and chat on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 at the library. Anyone is welcome to join them.
