Do you know Nancy from Musquodoboit Harbour? Well, you should. Because Nancy donated a huge amount of yarn to be used for our charitable projects (thank you, Nancy). She brought it to the Keshen-Goodman library and it covered two tables and a few chairs. There was so much… wool, acrylic, cotton, sock yarn, mohair, ribbon… I entertained myself imagining Nancy’s stash because she told us that she needed to ‘clean up’ her craft room, although to me it looked more like a result of an eviction. So, our yarn supply is growing.
The pile of hats, mittens, socks, and blanket squares is growing, too. I took a huge bag of knitting to the Public Gardens today and spent some time puzzling tourists by carefully tucking hats and socks into flower beds. These items were knitted by two senior groups, and the Fireside Knitters.
While I was photographing this scarf, there was this crazy bird sitting next to the bench. I though it could be injured or it couldn’t fly but apparently it was guarding a piece of bread on the bottom of the empty garbage bin. It didn’t mind my kids heffalumping around and only took off after it ate enough.
And here are some warm hats that will be donated to the Metro Turning Point.
If you like knitting hats, maybe you could join us? The hats and mittens can be dropped off at the LK Yarns. Thanks.
and two types of peppers. I am sure I didn’t recognize a few plants, too. A while ago I read about the City of Halifax gardener David McLearn who started adding vegetables to the city flower beds to support the spirit of urban food production. Neat, eh?
