Handmade for the Homeless - December 12, 2010
Washington DCJCC

100 hats  girls knitting

Each year for the MCCCS December 24th Day of Service (D24), we gift wrap hats, scarves, socks and slippers for the homeless in the Washington DC community.

Join fellow knitters and crocheters to knit and crochet for a great cause!  Whether you're an experienced knitter or crocheter or just interested in learning, we hope you'll join us at a Handmade for the Homeless!  Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute as gifts at D25. We've already got over 50 hats and scarves!

We hope you will join us and add to our collection.

What Should I Bring?
Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks.  
If you are learning to knit/crochet or looking for a great project, please bring:
#17 needles (circular or straight)
3 skeins of "worsted weight" yarn
A pattern for a simple hat will be provided for you. Please bring patterns to share if you have them.

If you have questions about this event please contact Sheryl at  

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 and toasty in the cold winter months
