Crochetville, an Internet crochet group, chose Casting Off The Cold for their January winter project 2008!!! WOW!! You would not believe the surprise I got,when I was told of the amount of items we have received from this wonderful group!

220 items !!!!!

A group of nineteen has been working for the past two months just for this project! We are grateful to know that these people are so caring and able to take time out from their busy days to make such beautiful things to send all over Canada and the States.

I am honoured that they chose Casting Off The Cold for their project, and appreciate the time they have put into it.

We would like to thank you all, on behalf of Casting Off The Cold, for helping us make a difference, especially as this year has been very cold and we need many knitted and crocheted items.

Thanks to Tracy Jennrich from Ballantrae, ON, for mentioning us. These items are going to LINUS PROJECT, ROSE OF SHARON, YELLOW BRICK HOUSE AND OTHER SHELTERS WE CAN HELP. If you would like to check out the photos of the items that were sent to us, click on the link below.
