Awhile back I became interested in a group at ravelry.com called Sharing our Gifts . . . 50 projects for 50 states. Sinclair chose a project and asked others to share her dream of sending hand knit/crocheted hats and slippers to a veteran’s home in Oregon. She had hoped for 20, but took 46 items to the home this week.

Above are the three hats I sent for the project.

For the second project Alaska was chosen as the state, with a shelter for women and children victims of domestic violence chosen as the project. You can read more about it on Sinclair’s blog.

I hope you will consider joining us for this and for future projects. Here’s my first pair of mittens for the project. I’ve since finished two hats and a pair of fingerless mitts.

    This is a great project. I’ve also contributed to both and plan to update my blog soon. Hope you received at least as many as Sinclair did.

    Yay! Thanks for coordinating this second project, and for sharing with your readers. My family has been hit hard by this economy, and though I can’t do much in many ways right now, I am loving the fact that I can still help others in this way. I am glad that there are so many generous and caring people who feel the same about giving to others.

  3. There you go again with that big heart of yours. This sounds like a wonderful project! It sounds like something fitting for one of my Only The Good Friday posts. Can I tell folks about it?
