Handmade for the Homeless December 2017 - BIG COUNT
Join Handmade for the Homeless for our special December session - the BIG COUNT! We have been working hard all year to create hundreds of beautiful warm winter items to benefit those experiencing poverty and homelessness in the DC area, and now it's time to inventory the end result.
All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome. Don't know how to knit or crochet? We'll teach you!
What should I bring?
Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks. If you are not already working on a warm winter item and are looking for a great project or just starting out, please bring:
- #8 or #10 knitting needles (circular or straight) or a size H crochet hook
- Patterns you're working on or want to start
What do you supply?
We provide lots of beautiful yarn, several patterns including hat patterns using #17 needles or a size N crochet hook, and experienced knitters and crocheters to teach anyone who would like to learn how to knit or crochet.
If you can't join us in person, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting:
- Gloves and Mittens
- Socks or slippers
- Other items to keep people warm during the cold winter months
Knitted items and yarn donations can be dropped off at the EDCJCC. Contact Sonya at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements. Thank you!
