Project #34: New Mexico, Silver Horizons

Project runs from October 15 to November 15, 2012. This month, we are knitting for low-income and disabled Seniors in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Silver horizons is serving about 9 low-income facilities and 9 care homes for Seniors.

They do a program where people can sponsor holiday parties so the Seniors have a wonderful holiday season. I am told there will be 425 Seniors in the program this year, so my goal (that is going to also be posted in the Charity Knitting group on Ravelry) is to have one item for each of them.

The items we have been asked to create are: Hats, scarves, lap blankets, small shawls, slippers, sweater vests, cardigans, socks, mittens, or gloves. Also ok: washcloths, walker caddy pouches, items that are sewn, eyeglass cases, etc.  This pretty much runs the gamut, so there should be something for everybody’s knitting/crochet style. In general, we will need soft, warm, washable, colors for male and female, and a variety of sizes.

Goal: 425 items.

This project has ended, but if you would like to donate for 2013, email me for address information.
Thanks to all the generous participants, WE DONATED 538 ITEMS TO THIS PROJECT!!!
