Hi everybody, I'm probably the slower knitter here. Since this project has started I haven't been able to finish not even a single scarf. In my partial apology I can say that it isn't easy to knit warm wool in the hot Italian summer, but the truth is I am a turtle-knitter.
Now that the autumn has seriously embraced Milan I'm knitting faster, and I'm about to finish my first scarf. Finally.
Yesterday, though, while I was at the park with my dog Valda, I've noticed that the homeless guy who lives there, and that I meet almost every single day, was freezing cold. So I asked to myself: shouldn't I give the scarf I making to him, instead that sending it oversea for other homeless guys?
I'm turning this question on you fellow knitters, because I'm not sure I will be able to complete another scarf for this project I committed for, along with you, so if I give this scarf I'm making to the homeless guy who lives in the park down here, somehow I feel I will turn my back on this great initiative. At the same time, we are knitting for homeless people, aren't we?

Hello dear members!
Do you remember the this post about the Hawaiian ladies
knitting scarves for US homeless?
Well, we have a problem
but I pray you´ll help me to find a solution.
The member from California -who had wrote me telling me she
would get the package with the scarves,
and give them away-
changed her mind and unsubscribed from KFH.
Thing is, the wonderful Hawaiian ladies knitting group have
FIFTY (50) SCARVES ready to mail to the US
and be given to homeless for Christmas.
I NEED A VOLUNTEER -BETTER ONE WHO LIVES IN A BIG CITY
WITH MANY HOMELESS- WILLING TO BE THE ANGEL
TO GIVE THE SCARVES ONE BY ONE...
MAYBE WITH THE HELP OF FAMILY OR FRIENDS...
Please e-mail me to
