Hope you’re enjoying your summer (or winter if you’re down under)! We have a group of youth conservationists who work for my company every summer. They’re all Yonkers Public School students and, as it turns out, several of them are learning to knit and there are a few more who are knit-curious. There’s one girl in particular who seriously has no fear! She made a hat and scarf and then decided it was time for a dress. The she decided that she would rather turn it into a skirt and top so she modified the pattern and ended up a with a great outfit!
But here’s the rub. Most of these kids come from families with very, very limited resources. Our gutsy knitter has recently been gifted a treasure trove of single skeins in amazing yarns and colors so we don’t need yarn and another friend was purging her needles so we’re good to go on that front as well. We do, however, need the expertise of this amazing group to figure out what to make with them.
So what’s your One Skein Wonder! Don’t worry about how big the skein is or the weight of the yarn; it’s a great assortment. And as they say, the best things in life are free so unless it is such a perfect pattern that should be in everyone’s library, please try to stick with the free ones.
I’m really looking forward to seeing what this group can come up with.
Thanks in advance for your help!
P.S. If you happen to be a designer who has a great one skein paid pattern please DM me. I have a limited budget but can buy a few patterns for them.
