Knitting4Children will be making hats, scarves and mittens
in teen sizes for the Boulder, CO chapter of Stand Up For Kids.
In response to my inquiry Ilene Blum, Ex. Director, StandUp
For Kids/Boulder County wrote:
"Our teenagers prefer dark colors such as Black, Dark
Green, Navy Blue, and Gray. Our kids are tall with big hands (sizes/adult small, Medium, and Large). Our need is great,
because we live in a cold climate and will greatly appreciate anything that your group can do for us.
Last year these types of donations prevented a lot
of Frost bite. We went through over 200 pairs of gloves, 125 scarves, and 200 hats for our kids that range in age from
ten to twenty one."
Completed items can be sent to the Boulder chapter of
Stand Up for Kids at:
STANDUP FOR KIDS
P.O. Box 21224
Boulder, CO 80308
You can also tie on a little note to each item with a
little message, if your knitters would like. Words of encouragement from people willing to take time to hand make something
for our kids really makes them feel that they have not been forgotten.
