Sock Monkey Mayhem was a great bit of fun, where our young participants sewed and stuffed their colorful socks into beautiful little monkeys!
Each monkey had a personality as unique as its creator.
We learned how to sew on buttons and create colorful pom poms, and our creations were going to be given as gifts to family or teachers, or kept for ourselves!
It was very fun program, one that will be repeated in the years to come.

We also had our first donation of a baby blanket for Knit Forward, a D.C.-based community knitting project, which will be donated to New Heights Program for Expectant and Parenting Students.
