I love to knit but I only knit when I am a passenger in the car or waiting for an appointment. When I am at home it is hard for me to sit that still. During this summer I have been knitting mittens. I am pretty much a two trick pony when it come to knitting, I only knit two things, hats and mittens. I like to knit those two because they are small,easy, and fast. I live in southeast Texas and mittens are not part of our everyday wardrobe even in the winter. A couple of the pairs are going to be presents but the remaining pairs are going to be donated. A previous church I attended has a mitten tree at Christmas that I could donate to but there are some other charities on the internet that collect mittens.
Mittens for Detroit is one: http://gettinitpegged.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/mittens.pd
Since I have been blogging I am amazed at the talent that is on the internet. The first time I went on Pinterest I was blown away at the creativity. The thought that if all the folks, with all this creativity, could create for a cause, how much social change for the good could occur. As a young women in the Methodist church I was amazed by the stories about the women of the church in the 1860’s organizing to bring about social change when they themselves had very little power. Just think about all the changes the lowly “bake sale” has made through history. One of my goals for 2014 is to use a little of my creativity to make a difference for others.
