All ready to go..........

I finally got all 10 learn to knit project bags together with the help of Angie; she supplied eight sets of needles and another lady supplied two sets of needles.  I did the rest, and off it went in the mail on Friday:

Each bag contains a pattern, ball of yarn (enough to make an adult hat) a set of needles and a stitch marker.
 I picked all bright colours for this set.
They are going to a ladies/girls group in Northern Manitoba and they will be learning to knit.  Any kits leftover I told the organizer to donate them to someone in their community.  I also included extra patterns and a couple of free knitting kits for a bookmark and a soft toy I got in magazines.

I plan on putting together another box in a couple of months time.

Such a great idea! I'm sure they will be much appreciated.

Gill, people are always giving me knitting needles. Is there some way I could donate them to your cause? I gave about a dozen sets to a lady in my area but she doesn't want/need any more.
