“I love the way knitting brings people together.”
– Debbie Macomber, A Good Yarn
As Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the author of At Knit’s End: Meditations for Women Who Knit To Much remarks, “Sometimes, people come up to me when I am knitting and they say things like, “Oh, I wish I could knit, but I’m just not the kind of person who can sit and waste time like that.” How can knitting be wasting time? First, I never just knit; I knit and think, knit and listen, knit and watch. Second, you aren’t wasting time if you get a useful or beautiful object at the end of it.”.
We agree. So a humble knitting and sewing project is being run with women from the community. Wool and needles have been donated and we hope to scale this project over the summer. All wool, needles and pattern donations are warmly welcomed!
