From your Charity Coordinators, shout out to those who were able to join us for our first fall charity knit-in event on October 22nd! We had a dozen KANG members gathered and a couple bins of charity yarn sifted through for more projects. We dropped off 60 of the 7×9 rectangles to the Warm-Up America offices! THANK YOU to all who were present and/or donated to this cause!
Introducing you to our next charity knit along: fidget sleeves! This one is more creative than the blocks for Warm Up America (please feel free to keep knitting/crocheting those blocks and we’ll collect at the next charity event), so get those creative juices flowing!
The pattern is a free Ravelry download (https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fidget-sleeve).
This fidget sleeve is for those with dementia as they like fiddling with their hands. It uses small quantities of different colors of worsted or aran-weight yarn. You can embroider French knots, and add beads, buttons, ribbons or pom-poms. Feel free to use your imagination!
The charity we are going to bless with these sleeves is LBJ Hospital Alzheimer’s and Geriatric Care. The date and time are still to be determined, but we are looking at January for the event.
