Over 1000 balls of yarn were donated and 200 knitted items loaned towards Little Joe's effort to win the Extra Yarn book contest. Once the contest is over and the knitted items returned, the yarn balls will be donated to the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women.
This project was great for so many reasons. It was light hearted and fun. It was community building. And it allowed us to do something for others. We all know how restorative knitting and crocheting can be.
