Positive Tomorrows is an elementary school for homeless children in Oklahoma City. We need help knitting or crocheting 20 or more animals for Kindergarten-1st grade that will be donated in the fall semester. Many of the children live in shelters and this would give them something to treasure. Bring your animal into the store by August 7th, there will be a drawing for participants at Knit Nite August 7th, for an L & B Yarn Co. gift card. If you are out of town and would like to donate please mail your animal and contact information to the store at 425 W. Gray, Norman OK 73069. All participants are eligible for the gift card drawing.
So far we have received three completed projects including Sheldon the Turtle. If you are interested in knitting Sheldon by Ruth Homrighaus just click here. If you think you might need some help knitting Sheldon L & B is offering a 3 part class that will begin in July, check the calendar for details. Let’s have fun making something for a child to love, there are tons of adorable animal patterns on Ravelry.
