A Yarny Project for GayRomLit



There are many things that delight me about the LGBTQ romance community.  One is how passionately we support various LGBTQ groups and causes.  Another is how many of us are passionate fiber artists.  This fall, let’s bring those passions together at GRL to support Atlanta area homeless LGBTQ youth.   

Lost-n-Found Youth, Inc is a non-profit organization dedicated to getting kids off the street.  But there are only so many shelter beds available, and they need warm clothing for those who can’t get a spot.  If you knit or crochet, please consider making a few hats, scarves, or mitts and bringing them to GRL for Lost-n-Found.  A wide variety of sizes and styles can be put to good use; I only suggest that the yarn be machine washable, so that the items will stand up to wear and tear.  If you have questions about the project, I can be reached at fibrobabe@yahoo.com.  You’ll also find me as Fibrobabe on Twitter and Ravelry (the greatest fiber crafting website ever!  If you’re not a member, you should be.  There’s even a M/M lovers’ group!).
 
Thanks for helping us keep these kids warm this winter, and letting them know that there are people out here who love them.
