The greatest cruelty is our
casual blindness to the despair
I learned to knit because I
wanted to knit socks, I think
I even mentioned in this space
that I wanted to have 100 pairs
of socks in my drawer when
and then I saw this ...
Why do I need 100 pairs of socks
when I live in a coastal town and
wear flip flops or go barefooted
most of the time? I don't.
I have learned that Knitter's and Blogger's
are some of the most caring, giving
souls and I could use your help, I think
we could offer a little bit of beauty and
warmth to someone who has so little.
If you're a sock knitter would you
consider making a pair of socks to
donate to the homeless? There are
an estimated 1,750,000 homeless
in the US and 36 % of those are
families with children so all sizes
And if you're not a sock knitter
would you consider buying a pair
of dark colored socks to donate?
My goal is 100 pairs that will be
sent to Washington DC to be
distributed to the homeless. I
would like to make the trip myself
and that may still happen, I will
keep you posted.
Winter is fast approaching and I
would like to have the socks
ready to go by Thanksgiving.
