Mittens, Hats, Scarves, and Yarn

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

Items Recently Donated To …
Waldo County Triad: 11 hats, 2 mittens, and 2 cowls
Hats with Hugs: 3 hats
Walker School: 8 mittens and 4 hats

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.
