"Socks are like gold to the homeless person." -Union Gospel Mission
Every year the Yorkshire Yarns community donates
knitted & crocheted items to the homeless for my birthday. .
Let's begin early this year by knitting socks!
We all know what it means & feels like to receive handmade objects.
Why not pass that along to those who may really need it?
Any weight will be accepted but DK & worsted may be best for warmth and durability.
And they're a quick knit!
All sizes will are needed as well. Sadly, there are plenty of kids in shelters too.
Our goal is to donate 100 pairs of socks by December 17th.
We'll accept socks from now until then.
