For the Little Ones

19 08 2011

My mother loves to knit.   She was asked by Caring for Young Refugees (, an organization we belong to which supports lives of children and women in Cambodia by running nurseries and training women to weave, to help support children in the Tohoku region affected by the disasters of March 11th by making knit caps to be distributed to nurseries they work with.

She hasn’t ironed all of them so some of them look bulkier than others.

She’s done 60.  40 more to go.

Wow, they are so cute! She must be really good. I used to knit but haven’t for such a long time. Maybe I should start again. Do you think she can teach me??

I’m sure she would’ve loved it had I asked her to teach me. I was never interested. ^^

She’d be thrilled to learn you could be interested. 😀
