One pattern + different yarn options = lots and lots of great hats!
Named for Mcpl. Mark Isfield, Izzy Dolls are small knit and crochet dolls that are given to children by Canadian soldiers and health care workers serving in war zones and disaster areas around the world.
There has been a call to create Izzy Dolls for the Syrian Refugee children who are now arriving in Canada. Read on to find out how you can participate, by knitting or crocheting your own set of Izzy Dolls!

Things you can knit with a single ball of yarn...
2015 is the Year of the Sheep. As aficionados of all things wooly and sheepy, how could we not celebrate?
Whether we make New Year's Resolutions or not, the start of a new year is a great time to take stock of your life and possessions and make a few positive... goals
for the coming months (I'm trying to make this sound positive!). One of my goals is to put my yarn stash to good use, either by knitting it up, or clearing it out - thereby making room for new yarn! With that in mind, I have compiled a (not very long) list of charitable organizations who would be wonderful recipients of your knit and crocheted items. I have also listed a few local groups who are happy to take your yarn and put it to good use for you. Please feel free to leave comments about your own favourite groups - just make sure to leave contact information so that interested people can get in touch with them!
7 Days is plenty of time in which to knit something - and learn to play with colours while you're at it!
