Success!

As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I spent last Saturday rocking and knitting for Warm The World. Emily of Colorado Fiber Arts organized a fantastic event. The sidewalk in front of her store was lined with rockers:

One of the local TV stations showed up to interview Nan, our founder:

I didn’t take enough pictures, but Felicia has a whole post full of pictures here.  Emily at Colorado Fiber Arts has more pictures here.

As I’ve mentioned before, WTW is a non-profit organization with 501-(c)3 designation and operates solely on donations. There are no paid staff members. Everything (yarn, patterns, needles, hooks) is donated to WTW.

Our first rock-a-thon was a huge success:

Money donations: $1010.26

 

145 pounds of yarn

 

1 pair felted slippers

12 scarves

10 adult hats

5 helmet liners

23 kids hats

58 squares

6 adult afghans

13 baby afghans

Thank you to everyone who donated to Warm The World. If you would like to donate, you can do so here.

If you are in the area, you can drop off donations (yarn, needles, money, squares, etc.) at Colorado Fiber Arts.
