Occupy Wool Street

Marvel Scarf
My dear friend Aimee of Compassionate Conversations told me about Occupy Wool Street, an effort to provide warm clothing for the Occupy Protestors. Occupy Wool Street started in Chicago, but I decided that I’d rather keep my items a little closer to home, so I sent these things to Occupy Boston. After a bunch of research, I found there’s a Ravelry group for Occupy Boston AND a Facebook group for knitters who support them.


I mailed them a warm wool scarf I made

as well as 2 headbands / earwarmers that were in my UFO pile and really needed to be finished and donated to someone with cold ears:

The Occupy encampment in Dewey Square was broken up on Saturday morning, but I am hoping someone picked them up from the OB PO box a couple of weeks ago and someone got some good use of them. A little support from a couch potato [wink].
