I’ve had some communication from Save the Children today. They would be delighted to receive one cap per knitter, although larger contributions are great, and would like to have caps arrive by mid-December, even though the deadline is January 2, 2007.
So I’m putting the finishing touches on my pile and will send this batch out tomorrow. The action kit has an address of Save the Children, PO Box 950, Westport, CT 06881. The e-mail I received this morning said packages can also be addressed to Save the Children, 54 Wilton Road, Wesport, CT 06880.
The photos here are not great because it’s a gray day, but it was gray yesterday, too, and the primary subjects of the photos are about to be sealed up in a cardboard box and will be out of here by tomorrow, when the sun will probably shine.
Here’s the bear who has been monitoring my progress, nearly buried in caps:
And here’s a more organized photo of the collection:
ONE cap takes less than an hour to knit and can be mailed to Save the Children in a relatively small envelope. I wonder how many people could knit and mail just ONE cap within the next week?
Sending the box tomorrow will open up opportunities for me to finish a cardigan that’s been knitted up to the armholes since late spring and to proceed with (and post notes on) my Arctic Lace knitalong projects. They’re not only started but well along, and then I got distracted by how simple it would be to make such a big difference in someone else’s life. So quickly.
One cap. . . .
