I will make a Julies hat with my Apricot Shine for the 2/3 yr old little girl. And maybe some matching socks??

Would the 17-yr old girl like a hat in the apricot color? Maybe with matching wrist warmers?

And, I will definitely do clogs for someone. Will just need sizes. I guess those can wait until Julie gets back to you, Julie.

Kelly,

Edited 'cause I got my teenage girls mixed up.
I think the 17yo girl would LOVE the hat and wrist warmers!!! Go for it!

As for clog sizes ... oh, my. Well, I just don't know. Maybe men's medium and instructions for felting? Although then you couldn't make them slip resistant. :thinking: Hmmm ... deserves some pondering.

Oh, and I think all of you need to change your name to "Julie" because this isn't confusing enough.

:D

GREAT news!! Dana at Chix With Stix LOVES the idea of donating any clogs I make in the classes I teach to kids at RMCH!! That may only equal 1 pair per month, but STILL!

I can include a cheery note from me, adding something at the bottom like "yarn for these clogs was donated by Chix With Stix in Forest Park, IL" right?

Kelly --

That is so cool! And, yes, I would think that a note inside would be a great idea. Oooo ... and something else just came to mind ... what if we offered to teach knitting classes to the kids when they're up there!!!!??? There are at least 2 or 3 teenage girls that are getting treatments, and I can see that this would be a cool thing for them to get into.

They already have an art group coming in about once a week, but what if we offered to come in once a month or something (or maybe Dana could help us out rounding up volunteers, too) ... that would be so cool. Most of the projects they currently offer up there are geared to preschool- & early elementary-aged kids. I think something for the upper elementary & teenage kids would be really neat!!! And what if they included the Mom's (and Dads?) as well??? OK ... I'm thinking out loud now ...

Hmmm :thinking: Let me talk to Julie.

Well, Ms. Jul...the same thing ran through my head! I think you should come up for open knit night at Chix a couple of Wednesdays and WORK that into conversation!!

Well, Kelly, I think you and I could be the impetus for the knitting class, and then perhaps we could get various yarn stores -- including C w/ S -- to donate yarn. Then we'd just have to find a good source for needles -- maybe some of the bigger chain stores could help out w/ that -- like Joanne's, H.L. or Michaels? Or, we might even be able to contact some of the needle manufacturers directly to get needle donations.

Oooo ... these wheels are spinnin' now!!!

Julie, I would ask at W&Co about yarn, too...I seem to remember something in their newsletter about donating yarn for charity proects.

And KK, mea culpa, I am so sorry I haven't gotten the pattern to you yet. The last 48 hours have been nuts and my computer time has been a little limited. And I have to go to bed now or I'll get a lecture in the morning.

But wait, there's a crying child, my night isn't over yet.......
