Charity knitting.

Yesterday was our first charity knitting day for the year. We had a nice morning...lots of knitting, talking, eating, drinking (tea and coffee that is!)...and laughing!!




And here is a picture of some of the knitted items the ladies brought in: a large blanket for the Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia and scarves (rolled up in the picture), hats and slippers for various charities. Plus lots more knitted squares that some of the ladies have taken home to make into blankets.

  1. We don't have anything like this here where I live, or at least I am not familiar with it. But it sounds like it will be a very nice endeavor.

    Thank you for sharing,

  2. Hi Maria - I have been co-ordinating the group for about 3 years now. Last year we sent off over 200 items to various charities. The ladies really like getting together...and we are also helping those in need.
