I have a project

I have a project I would love help on. An acquaintance on my holiday year long knitting group on Ravelry is a teacher in Michigan. Most of her students qualify for free or reduced fee lunches. During the winter they can not go outside unless they have a hat and gloves/mittens. Because they are low income it is the last thing on their parents minds to buy. I would love to help her out with some mittens and gloves. I will be making gloves for next years class, however, this year they have nothing and there really isn't a lot of time to get them, so I am headed out to do some shopping for some of those magic gloves and some hats. Usually the dollar store has those kinds of things and sometimes even in sets. Do you want to help me out? I'd love it if you wanted to either buy or knit something for these kids. They are 2nd graders, so about 6 or 7 years old. Let me know here in the comments or you can send me an email to mommy_birdto2 at hotmail dot com. Thanks. :)

Count me in too! I like knitting, but don't need any more knitted things so this works out perfectly!
