This spring, the knitters in Knit for a Cause loved making stuffed animals for the patients at the Children's Hospital in Peoria. Students made a total of 15 stuffed animals--octopus, bunnies, and fish! A big shoutout to Mrs. Hilary Reiner, who graciously accepted our donation and took the time to teach the students a little bit about the Children's Hospital! Way to continue to spread joy through the art of knitting!

During February and March, Knit for a Cause collaborated with Mrs. Kinder to make a knitting-theme pottery project called a yarn bowl. These bowls are great for knitters as your small ball of yarn goes inside the bowl. Then the working tail goes out through the decorative swirl. As knitters continue to knit from their yarn, the ball spins inside the yarn bowl; thus preventing it from rolling all over the house! What a fun way to bring pottery and Mrs. Kinder's expertise into Knit for a Cause! Beautiful work girls!
