Adieu Warm Woolies

Their website states:

"Dear Warm Woolies Friends,

Warm Woolies has decided to cease operating at the end of 2009.

Warm Woolies has always relied on relationships with international adoption agencies and international relief efforts to distribute our pieces overseas. Over the past year, due to matters beyond our control, these agencies and efforts are no longer able to distribute our pieces. Without these distribution channels, we are no longer able to fulfill our mission of providing children around the world with warm clothing."

Afghans for Afghans is still in operation and does almost the same thing.

I was so saddened when Warm Woolies folded. I knitted a number of hats for them, to be sent to the reservations in S. Dakota. Nowadays I make them for Project Lighthouse, a charity in Colorado Springs that sends semi-truckloads of clothing and supplies to Pine Ridge and Rosebud.

It's too bad that they gave up altogether when they could still have done a lot of good for poor children in this country. Pity, too, that the Warm Woolies patterns are gone -- they were good ones.

I still have their patterns in my email files. What is your email address and I will send them to you.
