Charity Update

Finished and ready to go into the mail are scarves and mittens. I finished my second red scarf for the Red Scarf Project and a quick pair of child's mittens for afghans for Afghans. While my regular knitting gets slowed down when I throw in these projects, I don't mind because it's nice to think that I'm doing a tiny bit of good for someone else. Warming up a child's hands in the wasteland that's now Afghanistan, giving a foster child a package to open with a cheery scarf and a gift card is totally a worthwhile way to spend some time. I highly recommend it!
