WIP Rundown
Waiting for Another Weekend

Knit Unto Others 2006

Tomorrow is the official kick off for Knit Unto Others.  For the next two weeks, Carole and I ask you to join us in giving thanks for the bounty we have by giving of your knitting time. Knit anything you like and give it to the charity of your choice.  There are so many places around Blogland that have put out the call for warm knits and a few links can be found on the side bar of the KUO blog.

Homelesshatsforknituntoothersnov I'm already knitting a hat that will go to the Good Samaritan Society where Blogless Val volunteers her time.  I use Susan's Amber Hat  as a template as it makes for very quick knitting.  Soft wool yarn makes very warm hats. 

Stacey is in the process of knitting loomed hats for KUO.  She took a fall while at work and dislocated her elbow.  During the visit to the ER to have it realigned, the Dr. broke it  (can you believe that!?) and she had to have surgery. She's now healing and doing well in physical therapy.  Stacey believes that if she can contribute, then anyone can.

Many bloggers have stepped up with prizes for the participants.

KPixie has generously donated a $75.00 gift voucher to their shop. Carole and I thought this should go to the person who knits the most items over the next two weeks (Nov. 18-Dec. 2, 2006).

Other prizes (names will be drawn randomly from the participant list):

Susan and Laurie are teaming up. Susan will knit face clothes and soap socks to be filled with Laurie's fragrant soaps. Blogless Karen is donating a skein of her fabulous Sleeping Dragon Yarn and Mim will donate three of her fabulous patternsCrown Mountain Fibers and Scout's Swag will also supply us with gifts as will Carole and I.   There may be a couple of other prizes, too. We'll draw names on December 3rd and announce the winners on Monday the 4th.

Leaving a comment on the KUO blog is enough to sign you up so you can give of your talents and perhaps receive a lovely gift in return.

Enjoy your weekend!
