As a knitter, I am used to the magic of knitting. But every now and then I feel astonished by the results produced by two sticks and a string. This time, it’s about the size and determination. I am very happy to share with you the work of the members of Knitting for Charity group that meets every fourth Wednesday of the month at the Cole Harbour Public Library.
These ladies started working on their squares last winter and knitted enough squares to make three blankets. Then a few brave souls took the squares home and turned them into these amazing creations.
Do you see the size of this thing? There are two grown-up women hiding behind it! This is a truly generous gift, nicknamed “Stained Glass Blanket”.
The next one is called “Shades of Blue” and it is very elegant. I love how the ladies used both the texture and the colours to create a pattern.
And if you like contrast colours, here is something to feast your eyes on. This blanket is my favourite!
Knitting for Charity group voted to give their wonderful blankets to the youth, women, and men shelters — one for each.
Last week our local newspaper Metro published an article about knitting for charity. There are many knitters in our community who do this important work quietly, without any recognition or praise. However, I like it when people share their thoughts and talk about their projects. I believe that it inspires others and sends a clear message — when we care, we can achieve great things, one stitch at a time.
