Clouds, chill, and crafting for CASA's children
Today was the first Craft-In for CASA. My class and allied crafters gathered in the center of campus to knit, crochet, teach, and spread the word about the CASA kids we are working to help.
We were many.
And we were mighty.
Molly's hat, ready to add the earflaps.
Ashley and Kendall consult on yarn choice.
Ashlyn's project matches her sweater.
Monica and Claire craft while wearing items they've crafted.
Tamami and Lydia are ready for fall with colorful wooly hats.
Ariel won't let the cold stop her; she has a handmade scarf to wear while she knits a new one.
Emyleigh starts a pair of baby booties in fashionable fall colors.
Emma brought gifts from a knitter who's decided to participate in our effort.
Bruce D. Bear, UCA mascot, gets a quick knitting lesson from Monica.
And the beat goes on. Taylor gets his first lesson ...
... and so does Connie.
The hour went so quickly. Thanks to everyone who came. Let's do it again -- only bigger and better -- on November 3! Like the project on Facebook to get all the updates and join in!
