Crocheting for a Charity

Well hello there! Yes it has been awhile since my last blog post.. I really do miss posting but it seems I spend more time reading everyone elses and never get a chance to sit down and write.. I just wanted to share with you my big plan for Thanksgiving Day. Yes I know it's a little ways away but as you have all seen from one of my post I have a huge yarn stash..And its only gotten bigger..I read many blogs of crocheters and knitters like Debbi over at http://hooksandyarns.blogspot.com/ donating blankets,scarves,hats and so many great things that I have to get involved.. My very energetic neighbor who is very active in many charities helps out twice a week at the http://cskdetroit.org/.. It's a local soup Kitchen here in Michigan.  They service about 200 families a day and have many great things available.. I hope you please take a minute to look.. On Thanksgiving day they pass out winter coats to the needy so I am going to get my stash taken down and crochet some scarves to be passed out with the jackets.. The Michigan winters can be very cold and long. My goal is 100.. I am on my 7th one.. Wish me luck as I so very much want to accomplish this goal if not more...I will keep you updated on my progress ...I wish I could crochet faster and add some more or even hats and mittens...so let the crashing of the stash carry on and the crochet hook get hooking...Have a great weekend every one..

This is one wall of my stash

this is the other side of my wall
This is what I have done so far:)
