Hi all! This week I made a trip out to the Martha O'Bryan center to drop off all the knit goodies you guys have been sending in!! On the way there I stopped by the post office and there was a big box of beautiful knit and crochet items from Shirley S. in Colorado!  This included 9 hat and matching sock sets, 4 pairs of socks, 4 knit bears, 3 hat and matching sweater sets, 3 sets of froggie slippers (with the no-slip patch sewn on the botton--how cute is that!), and 3 sock hats!!

The total items donated:  71 hats from baby to adult, 8 scarves, 1 pair adult mittens, 1 pair child mittens, 8 washclothes, 6 bears, 1 snowman, 3 froggie slippers, 9 hat/sock sets, and 3 hat/sweater sets.

I sent 6 preemie hats to MamasHealth in California. They collect preemie hats and give them to local hospitals.

Last but not least, I sent 2 monsters to the Hope Garden and Bonnie J. She collects monsters for children at an abused women and children's shelter and gives a little cute monster to each of the kids at Christmas time.

Thank you so much for all of your hard work and your donations!! You are what makes Knits for Needs what it is! I will still continue to collect all year round, so keep sending me your items. I still have a lot of yarn if anyone needs any more. Also, I plan to donate some yarn to a local school that teaches their students to knit in home economics class.

Thanks again for all of your support. Keep up the good work!

Keep the yarn flying,


  1. We're so grateful to you and your knitters, Michelle! We're working on how best to distribute these beautiful items and want to get you pictures of the recipients. To everyone who gave time or yarn to Knits for Needs, many thanks!

  2. You are very welcome! We are so happy to give!
