The list of ideas for charitable causes to knit and crochet for in 2012 continued this week. On the Designs by KN Facebook page, I have been featuring a different charity each day to start off the new year. We are now up to suggestion #12. The first five charities were listed in a previous post, so #6-#12 are listed here:
11. Newborns in Need
Any of these long-standing organizations would appreciate receiving our handiwork. Just choose one that fits your interest and follow their guidelines for contributions of hand-knit or crocheted items.
The former post included information and links to the 2012 Special Olympics USA Scarf Project. This week I completed 3 more scarves which will be sent to the Special Olympics Colorado office to help reach their goal of 800 scarves by Feb. 24. I have a lot of yarn still to be worked up into scarves but these are the FOs this week:
1. Another Special Olympics Peak-to-Peak Scarf
2. Ripple-Band Scarf (Note: for this version, ch 26 to start & alternate 2 rows each color throughout)
As I was setting up my new page on Pinterest (follow me there if you’d like), I did some work on various photo pages where all of my published designs are displayed (Flickr, Ravelry, etc.) Just by accident, I discovered that a design created for the Knit.1 Winter 2007 issue is now available as a free pattern download on the Vogue Knitting site:

When this first came out it was so exciting to see that the hat was modeled by America’s Next Top Model Cycle 7 winner CariDee English! Love the styling which was part of the “Stitches in Time” story line in that issue. This photo represented the ’30s era.
The National Western Stock Show is going on up in Denver, the Broncos are in a playoff game tomorrow, and we have a road trip to Steamboat Springs coming up. I’m glad the Special Olympics Colorado deadline isn’t until mid-February so I can continue working my way through this …
