holiday DIY of the day #6: maya*made

Maya*Made is an interesting blog always graced with a pleasing dash of wintery photos these days.  Yesterday, she shared a tutorial for making fingerless gloves from the Craft Hope book.

I don't know if you've heard of Craft Hope, but the idea behind it is pretty wonderful.  Make things for others.  Sell handmade to raise money for Haiti post-earthquake.  Sew pillows that will be given to kids in the hospital with cancer.  The book is part fundraiser, part collection of projects and means of making those projects for a purpose.  Each project includes a related charitable organization.

So I was quite delighted to see this project shared--makes me want to own the book even more!  I'm a terrible knitter (zero patience), but if you're more interested, take a look here and jump on in to a pair of fingerless gloves!
