Here are the contents of my latest charity box.....8 hats and 8 scarves. I buy my wool as cheaply as possible so I often end up with odd balls that are perfect for smaller items. I have been making these for a few months and the box is now full and ready to post. It is actually so long since I started knitting these that I had forgotten some of the items. I hope my sense of excitement at rediscovering them is mirrored at the charity.
This lot will be going to Operation Orphan which is an organisation that delivers warm clothing to children living in poverty in Central and Eastern Europe.
There is a video here that shows what they do.
Operation Orphan is still advertising their Winter 2012 campaign on their website. But I have had it confirmed by email that they have already started collecting clothing for 2013. Their headquarters are in the UK and clothing can be sent to them at the following address:
