"Osmond Colors Children's Project 2010"
♪♫ Baby It's COLD Outside! ♪♫
Well, it isn't cold right now, but it will be soon and this little project is for fans and other crafters to knit and crochet items for KIDS (preemies through teens) ~ warm hats, scarves, mittens, booties, socks, and slippers, all made in, you've got it, OSMOND COLORS from the 1970's!!
Wish I had a better photo of the colors they wore, but the top one and the black and white ones are photos that I took at the Minnesota State fair in 1975 maybe? Can't really see the colors but they wore outfits and scarves that reflected each of their colors back them.

If you are a knitter or crocheter or loom knitter, you might be asking "How can I help?" It's easy! Simply find a place near you who might need some warm hats, scarves and/or mittens for children this winter. Call them up and ask what their needs are or will be, find some yarn in fun Osmond colors-- choose your fave Osmond's color, or use all of them, needles or hooks and winter patterns and get started!
This project will run from June 20th - extended to Dec 1st, 2010!!!
Call your friends, get together, play Osmond records, and let's warm children in need!
Please tell others about this project! Let's warm the kids this winter. ♥
Here are some ideas for places that might need what you make:
Domestic Violence shelters, soup kitchens, inner city or your local elementary schools, foster care facilities, WIC, pediatrics wards, NICU's and so forth. You choose.
I added a special thermometer graphic to keep track of how we are doing and maybe a map of some kind if I can locate one! Let's see if we can get someone from every state, and as many countries as possible, involved! As you complete items feel free to email your ongoing totals to BEV. Please put Osmond Project in the subject line. Let's start helping kids today!
Please email me with your name (first name and last initial), and state if you would like to join in and be listed.
