We knitted, crocheted, and loomed over 375 hats for a  Philadelphia school. In conjunction to several other knitting groups, we are providing warm hats and scarves to each of the 400 students -- in time for 2019's winter weather.

Christmas at Sea

Silver Reins and Golden Saddles

image35

This program of the Ivy Hill Therapeutic Equestrian Center brings horses to visit residents of nursing homes and  rehabilitation centers. Ivy Hill volunteers like to give each  senior a remembrance of their visit. We felt the Waldorf ponies  most endearing. We used 2 horse patterns: One piece and Two Piece.

Helmets for the Troops

In March, 2010 we completed our most ambitions project ever by delivering 130  helmet liners for our National Guard Unit in Spring City as they deployed for duty in Afghanistan. This balaclava is a useful ski-mask. Knit to fit any size using our Top-down Pattern.
