Charity knitting

Our local km group, the Triangle Machine Knitters, is making knitted items to donate to Interact," a private, nonprofit United Way agency that provides safety, support, and awareness to victims and survivors of domestic violence and rape/sexual assault. "

We are giving our items to be part of the Christmas presents given to those who need it.

I knit a few fisherman's rib scarves on the bulky machine and on the standard to include in this group donation. Here is the photo of the scarves.
These scarves were fun and quick to knit. In fact the fringe took longer than the scarves! Some fringe was knit on the knitting machine and some was added later using a rug making latch hook. 

I also "cheated" and hand knit a couple of baby sweaters. Again, these were things that the hand knitters had been talking about and I found the pattern on Ravelry. 

As all the handknitters said, these are fun, fairly quick, and very addictive!
