I am working on a pair of Stay-On Baby Booties using Yakatoa by Wonderwool. This locally dyed yarn is a blend of Superwash Merino, Yak and Nylon in a fingering/sock weight. Knitted flat and seamed, this well written pattern by Churchmouse (on Ravelry) is a quick project for an intermediate knitter.
Have you heard of Project Linus? It is a non-profit organization that helps to provide security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gift of new, handmade blankets and afghans. In 2016 the York County PA Chapter of Project Linus delivered over 2000 blankets to local hospitals, shelters and social service agencies. More information can be found on Facebook (www.facebook.com/ProjectLinusYork).
Uncommon Threads is now a Drop-Off Location for this amazing group. Donated blankets can be knit, crocheted or sewn with non-wool yarn or fabric, free of smoke and contact with pets, and at least 36″x36″ in size.
