There are so many different knitting and craft-related projects going on to help people affected by that storm called Sandy that I couldn’t possibly keep up with them all. I consider that a very good thing indeed.
Another very good thing indeed is this lovely Hampstead Wreath, a knit wreath adorned with a pretty cable pattern and designed by the good people at True Brit Knits. I know they’re good people because they’re donating the proceeds from the pattern’s sales through the end of the year to Citymeals-on-wheels NYC, which provides and delivers meals to homebound people and, as I learned from reading about this project on Mason-Dixon Knitting, has been working to help the food insecure since the hurricane hit.
It’s a great cause and a great value (£3, or a little less than $5) for a pretty wreath you’ll want to hang on your door or over the mantle this holiday season. And you’ll feel good doing it. What could be better?
