Knitting and World 2 – American Red Cross

Knit your bit!

    • Ya, knitters are pretty awesome when it comes time to knit for a good cause. I run a sewing group and we do a sewing event about every quarter. There are a lot of things we can sew for those in need. Knitting is just so portable. Sewing events usually take a concentrated effort, planning, logistics and so forth. But still worth doing!
