I finally dropped in to meet  the group and had a wonderful visit with them. Great ladies
doing a great job making a difference  in our community. 

Here is Barbara showing off her knitted hats.

And this is Joan, also knitted lots of hats and a couple of baby blankets.

All of these items were done by Lyne. Amazing stuff, sweaters, hats and toys.

Here is Surinder showing her lovely baby blanket.

And Laurina working on squares for a blanket.

Unfortunately we were unable to get pictures from some of our Charities, when our donation was delivered. This year donation went out to Rose of Sharon, York Region Woman Centre and Project Linus. Here we are at The Pregnancy Centre in Markham,

The Krasman Centre, in Richmond Hill

360 Kids in Markham,

Yellow Brick House in Markham,
It is always a good feeling when we hand over the goods and see how much it is appreciated. I am so proud of all the members in the Casting off the Cold group.


We finally wrapped up our meetings for 2014 and will meet in January 2015. If anyone is looking to join us in December, please check out our calender for 2015 in January. 
Here are some project from the group in Markham.
This blanket I crocheted from one of my Leisure Art little books. I love the colours in this one and I am working on another one with a softer hue. Can't wait to finish it, it is turning out pretty good so far.

Monica finished the scarves to go with the hat in the picture for Bev, one of Liz's friends. She away for the winter and did not have the time to finish them. Bev usually donate over 40 hat and scarf sets, these made up the difference. Thank you so much Bev for all your help.

From Margaret these beautiful scarves.

Maryann  a friend of Monica's knitted these scarves. Thank you Maryann.

Lots of scarves from Monica, to match up all the hats we needed to make up sets. And it helped!

And from Nayana this lovely jacket for a kid,
