International Crochet Day 2010
What better way to celebrate the joy of hooking than to hook for those in need?
Pakistanis devastated by recent floods will soon be struggling through a cold winter. As Wendy in NC said:
As the seasons change millions will be living in tent cities. Help them prepare for the cold winter nights in the mountain regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the North Western part of Pakistan.
Wendy's husband will be travelling to Pakistan in early October and she's started a group on Ravelry to collect crocheted (and kn*t ) hats for him to take.
You don't have to be a member of Ravelry to join in. If you like making hats and you're moved to help please send them - to arrive by October 1, 2010 - to:
110 Angle Street
Cherryville, NC 28021
If you're in Europe, like me, or you can't make the October 1 deadline, you can send them directly to Pakistan:
Sajjad Ahmad Jan
S/O Sayar Mohammad
Barzai Dawalt Khel
Tangi Charsada District
Khyber Pakhtun Khwa
I sent 3 off yesterday.
Dontcha just love crochet?
*In case you're wondering why Jimbo in particular gets a link, he's the man who started it all in 2007. :-)
