Fran: Some Knitting sites...

I have been busy knitting hat after hat for a homeless teen shelter in California so I haven't been doing anything new.

I wanted to come on here and post a couple of links that give the opportunity to bless others. The first one is in support of our troops overseas. At Operation Homefront directions are given to make a helmet liner to protect our soldiers from the bitter cold winters they have to endure.

At Afghans for Afghans you will find out how you can make afghans (obviously!) or other projects to send out. Here is an excerpt from the site: "afghans for Afghans is a humanitarian and educational people-to-people project that sends hand-knit and crocheted blankets and sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, and socks to the beleaguered people of Afghanistan."

Finally, Interweave carries a list of organizations that help people all over the world. This site isn't limited to knitting but includes crochet, quilting and other fiber arts used to bless others. They have contact information for each group listed so it would be easy to choose one to get involved with.

Don't forget our local hospitals, foster kids, hospices, shelters, etc. There are a lot of people out there who would be blessed by your beautiful knit creations.

" Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.' "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?' And the King will answer and say to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.' Mathew 25:34-40
