Simple Things

I stumbled upon this post on Friday and was immediately inspired to knit some wash cloths. Just looking at those little faces and how excited they would be to receive a simple wash cloth, some soap, a tooth brush and toothpaste snapped me into action.

I had plenty of cotton in my stash. I ran to the dollar store and grabbed some tooth brushes and toothpaste. 

If you're feeling down doing things for others is a good pick me up. 

If you feel inspired to contribute there is still time. As long as your package is mailed out by October 15th. Details are here.  The original date was the 10th but she has extended it to the 15th.

What a great cause. I have a few balls of cotton waiting to be knitted up into washcloths. I will cast on today and try to stop by the dollar store later on! Thank you for sharing about this!

This is a great idea. I have plenty of cotton waiting in the drawer. I'll see what I can do in the next day or two.

What a great sentiment she posted at the end, "trading ashes for beauty and rags for love"!! I can't get any dishcloths made, but I sure can mail some toothbrushes and toothpaste!
