There are so many wonderful opportunities to use your crochet to help others this time of year, that I wanted to take just a moment to make sure you all knew about this one! Yarnspirations is calling on knitters and crocheters to create the World's Biggest Stocking - to help the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation!
Yarnspirations is taking contributions of 3 x 3 ft blankets, that will be joined together into a giant stocking! Once the stocking is complete, the blankets will be donated to military charities, to help children left behind. You even get a fun badge to share on your website or Facebook or wherever to show you're participating!
There's no specific end date, so don't worry about fitting this into an already packed holiday season. But if you are heading to the store for yarn supplies this next month, see if you can grab a skein or two of Caron United and make a few stitches for this worthy cause! They're even donating a portion of the proceeds from the yarn sales. To get more info, go to Yarnspirations World's Biggest Stocking page - and give back this holiday season!

I HAVE ONLY JUST SEEN YOUR REQUEST FOR THIS CHARITY, WITH CHRISTIMAS ONLY A WEEK AWAY I KNOW I CAN'T GET ANYTHING DONE FOR THIS YEAR. ARE YOU PLANNING ON CONTINUING ON FOR NEXT YEAR, AND TRY TO OUT DO THE ONE MAKE THIS YEAR?
Hi Ann! It looks like this will be going on well into the new year - I plan on participating myself after the holidays! 🙂
