368 - Project 8!  

So as I was reading my morning blogs, one in particular really grabbed my attention.
Wind Rose Fiber Studios posted about how she was making cloths for Craft Hope.
What is Project 8 by Craft Hope you might ask?

Craft Hope "will be partnering with The Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, the Audubon Nature Institute, and the Mississippi Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge to assist them in their efforts in caring for and cleaning oiled marine mammals, mostly dolphins, other marine mammals, birds, and sea turtles. Dolphins are naturally curious and have been swimming toward the oil plumes to investigate… and that curiosity gets them in a lot of trouble against the oil slick. So here is what we are going to do… They need hand towels and wash rags to clean all of the nooks and crannies of the dolphins and sea turtles. They only need small hand towels and wash rags, no large towels please. If you can sew, knit, or crochet this project is for you. We are asking that you create sets of hand towels and/or wash rags to send. Preferably in sets of 10 or 20. These do need to be handmade since we are ‘Craft Hope.’ If you are crocheting or knitting, please send whatever you can."

Jenn of Wind Rose Studios has written and shared a super easy and quick pattern for making these cloths. They don't have to be pretty as they'll be discarded afterwards, so if you're a knitter or crocheter, what better way to share your craft!

What next?
