From: Ronnie Soltysiak

All knitters please remember part of our mission is to charity knit for those in need. November is traditionally our knit for charity meeting; however, charity knitting can be part of our knitting all year long. I have received the honor of being appointed the Charity Coordinator for our group. Those of you who know me know this is a passion of mine and my hope is to get everyone passionate about helping others. When we look at our life, if we have a knitting machine, a place to put it and capability to operate it, then we have so much compared to the people we knit for; it is our blessing to be able to help others. Please take a look at the list...see what you can make. It would be a great accomplishment if we could commit to one or two items from the list every month. Knitted items can be turned in to me and we will get them a new home. Share the knitting!
