Summer is definitely over here in the Northwest. The leaves are changing colors, the rain is starting up, and we’re dipping into the 40’s and 50’s at night. It doesn’t get super cold here in the winter, but I know I definitely wouldn’t want to spend the night out in the dampness, especially not without a scarf, hat, or gloves to ward off the chill.
We’ve been stockpiling all the hats, scarves, socks, and mittens you’ve seen featured in our catalogs, and yesterday we dropped them off, along with some men’s sweaters, at Operation Nightwatch, a local group that “offers respect, dignity, and friendship to to the street population of downtown Portland”.
We hope that the hand knits help keep someone in need a little warmer this winter. <
