The Project Semicolon collection seeks to remind those in mental health care that they are not alone, that this experience is only temporary and things will get better. Simple tube socks and mitts are easily made in worsted weight yarn and embellished with a duplicate stitch semicolon design to remind the wearer of the temporary nature of their experience. This pattern is simple, quick and ideal for charity and gift knitting. Making these socks or mitts for a loved one or person in need is a touch of warmth and a reminder that they are not alone.
