Recently I was contacted by a fellow Ravelry member from Pennsylvania about a special project that her group was knitting for Meals on Wheels. The dishcloth dresses are added to the recipients tray as a special gift on their birthday.
Here’s a few photos that she sent me.
I love the charms that they’ve added to make them extra special.
The charms are actually stick pins that can be removed when the dress is used as a dishcloth.
There are about 12 women actively working on them but there are 20 members in the group. We call ourselves Saucon Knit Works and mainly knit for charity.
Mary’s Shelter- homeless pregnant women
Mercy School for Special Learning-special needs children
The Boys and Girls Club of Allentown-several of our members teach knitting there after school once a week
The Children’s Home of Easton-orphanage
New Bethany Ministries-shelter for homeless women
Allentown Rescue Mission-shelter for homeless men
Inner City Schools in Allentown and Bethlehem-two of our members know teachers there
Meals On Wheels-washcloths, washcloth dresses and/or mug rugs are their tray the day of their birthday.
