Red Scarves due March 18; March / April Projects Announced!

We collected over a dozen completed projects at February's meeting, and are looking forward to sending FIFTY scarves to the Orphan Foundation of America!

If you took a kit in January or February with any of the four (4) scarf patterns, please make sure to return them by our next meeting on Friday, March 18. We'll be sending them out to the charity soon after. We gave out fifty kits, and are hoping to send a record number of projects to give a real boost to our 2011 season.

Now, onto project #2: our baby accessories to benefit LYFE: Living for the Young Family through Education. We will again have two (2) crochet options and two (2) knit options. Make sure to purchase or bring your needles as we will not have an inventory in stock for sale on site.

We have gotten good deals in the past from
