L & B Yarn Co. is collecting hats and lap throws for kids with heart defects and cancer in loving memory of Andi Nagelschneider, M.D. Thanks to many generous donations we have already collected over 15 hats and 5 blankets. If you are interested in donating, hats and blankets can be either knitted or crocheted and can be children to adult sizes small, medium, or large. The yarn must be washable and soft if you decide to add an embellishment like a button or flower please attach with a safety pin style stitch marker so it can be removed when washing. Girls like bright colorful hats and boys prefer darker colors with a bright stripe or two. OU, OSU and OKC Thunder colors are also popular.

With June quickly approaching it’s time for our annual toy drive! The past four summers L & B has been knitting, crocheting, and collecting through amazing donations, hand-crafted stuffed toys to send to the incoming kindergarten class at Positive Tomorrows, an elementary school for homeless children in Oklahoma City.
Each year we have had such overwhelming success that we have been able to donate enough toys to supply not only the kindergarten class, but also the first grade class. So this year we are once again turning to the knitting and crocheting community to help us make this year another success! As always, for each hand-crafted donation, you will receive an entry into a drawing for a $25 L&B Yarn Co. gift card.
The first in our collection is this extremely cute Jellyfish crocheted by Leslie out of 2 balls of Cascade 220 Superwash Wool. To take a look at this pattern on Pinterest just click here. We will collect donations all summer long until Friday, August 28th the day of our drawing! With so many adorable softies to choose from on Ravelry, you are sure to find one that a child will love. -B
