600 Monsters Strong

We have all been left reeling from the tragedy in Connecticut a week ago.  Some really wonderful folks on Ravelry’s group called LSG (stands for Lazy, Stupid and Godless) decided they wanted to get knitters and crocheters from around Ravelry to spend some time knitting a cute monster for each child at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

In just a few days, it exploded.  There are now more than 2000 people in the Ravelry group and about that many “likes” on their facebook page.

I am happily knitting away on a monster and I will post photos here when it is completed.

I would encourage you to check this out if it resonates with you.  This group has a lot of great ideas for also helping other young children who have experienced gun violence.
