Yarn

Love Life Ministry

We will be making baby, child and adult hats.  Knitters and Crocheters welcome. Patterns are available if needed, please contact Dinah Grassel at dinah.grassel@snc.edu.  If a hat is difficult, we will still accept completed baby blankets for Love Life Ministries. The blankets should have a minimum completed size of 30 inches by 36 inches. Please use acrylic or cotton yarn for the blankets(Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Cotton" works but not dishcloth cotton.) and acrylic for the hats.
 
The hats will be donated to Love Life ministries (baby), local elementary schools (child) and homeless shelters (adult) here in the area as well as in St. Louis.
 
Donation Needs:
New acrylic worsted weight yarn is needed.
  • Please only donate new yarn so we will know it has not been exposed to smoke, pets, etc., or contains wool.  
  • Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" or Lion Brand "Vanna's Choice" are good choices. 
 
Donations can be dropped off by January 4, 2019 in the Business Center Room 002 in F.K. Bemis International Center.
