Knitting has been steadily gaining popularity for several years. It’s a relaxing hobby without many supplies required. Check your local directory for classes at the library, knitting store or adult school. You can probably even find a friend to teach you. Seems just about everyone is doing it!

Let us suggest that you make your first project a worthwhile one. Knit and donate a unisex scarf.

Make your next project a red scarf to donate to the Orphan Foundation of America program. Scarves will be accepted September 1, 2008¬† through¬† October 31, 2008 and are distributed in care packages sent off for Valentine’s Day. What a great and simple way to show you care.

The great thing is that even a beginner knitter can knit a decent scarf.
