Hi, everyone! Our latest challenge is moving along very well for the women and children at AWAIC in Anchorage, Alaska, but we still need a few more pledges to finish.
We still need pledges for 12 pairs of women's slippers and 5 washcloths.
If you are interested in joining with us, please put your pledge in a comment below, then make what you pledged, and mail them off to the address listed in the Challenge information below by the mailing date!
We generally use acrylic yarn for our slippers and cotton yarn (always) for the washcloths. Doubling up on #4 medium worsted weight or #5 bulky yarn works well for slippers, if you can. You can use any pattern you wish (lots of links to free patterns, including our own, on our Pinterest page, too). However, we do ask that you do not add embellishments, such as, buttons or other small items that could easily be pulled off and swallowed, to any slippers for babies and young children.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Rachel, Lynne, and Judy
