Charity Knitting – June 2023 Update

What a month May was!
There was a great Knitted Knockers charity event sponsored by the KNOW chapter late in April. Many knockers were created for the cause.
We also ran our silent auction for the 16 skeins of cashmere blend Chinese yarn. There was great participation. Our winner was Roxanne Rump with a bid of $50. Congratulations to Roxanne!! The proceeds go back to the guild to offset the cost of shipping our charity items to benefit Ukrainians.
Also at the KNOW-sponsored charity event, Julie Wheeler, who works with Project Linus, took donations for spare stash yarn to benefit the project. There is still quite a bit of yarn left; see the pictures on Facebook if anyone is interested.
Finally, we can report that we have received three full stashes of yarn from Houston knitters who have died. The charity suitcase is overfull and we cannot use anymore for the rest of the summer.
No charity knit-togethers planned while the weather is hot and sticky.
Happy knitting!
