Y’all, this Polar Vortex is killing me. And I am safe and warm in front of the fire.
I read about this initiative in Ontario, where some kind soul is leaving scarves draped artfully about the city, for anyone who is cold, tagged with a small note saying this….
And I thought, ouch, scarves take a long time to knit! And hats more fun.
So, EVERY THURSDAY MORNING anyone who wants to have some tea and company and free yarn for knitting hats for those in need, come on down to the shop and cozy up on the couch and we will knit hats. Then we can label them and yarn bomb the world with them. Or at least Beverly. Come with your ideas and creative juices!
I am not sure where we will yarn bomb with our hats, but yarn bomb we will!
Poor Chucho. He had too much fun in Texas with his cousins, and he had to get shaved down to his nekkid pink skin. So i made him a pretty little mat to snuggle up on. But still he was trembling with shame and the chilly New England Springtime.
The after-school Yarns in the Farms Kids Kamp came to the rescue. They measured his neck, picked out 3 skeins of Spud and Chloe Outer, a soft velvety bulky washable yarn with 50% wool and 50% cotton. They figured out gauge, and we made it up as we went along. No fear! Now Chucho is all gussied up. And warm!
Little Chucho, Mr Tink and Tink went home: 220 South Colorado St, Port Lavaca, Texas.
