Annual Toy Drive

Positive Tomorrows Octopus_2

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
