January is National Mitten month and AllFreeKnitting will be teaming up with Lion Brand to sponsor a mitten charity drive for Mittens for Detroit. Knitting and crocheting are wonderful skills that allow you to give back to your community. Given the record low temperatures we’ve been experiencing this year, there are plenty of people out there who could really use a new pair of mittens. Mittens for Detroit exists solely to provide new, unused mittens and gloves to those in need – both children and adults – in metro Detroit. By teaming with Mittens for Detroit, AllFreeKnitting are hoping to inspire more crafters to give back to the world.
