Las month Jody Grage, Project Lead for SB Knitters, delivered to The Bridge Care Center a bag of hats and scarves that showed up on her porch and two bags full collected at a recent gathering of the Ballard Knitters for the Homeless, plus she delivered two boxes of scarves and hats to Nyer Urness House.
The Knitters have been asked to provide additions to the welcome packages for the seniors moving in to the new LIHI* building. They start moving in on 23 December and the grand opening is mid January.
Keep those donations of scarves, gloves and hats coming! For information on when and where to drop anything off, or to pick up some fingering yarn and soft acrylic sport yarn that was recently donated for this purpose, email Jody or call 206-718-1529.
The Knitters meet from 7pm to 9pm the second Friday of each month at Ballard Coffee Works (22nd & Market). All are welcome — there is lots of yarn just waiting for your needles! This is a great project for both beginners and experienced knitters. For more information, contact Jody.
*LIHI is the Low Income Housing Institute. They are currently completing the Cheryl
Chow Court at 2014 NW 57th Street which contains 50 units, studio and one-bedroom for low-income seniors ages 62 and up. Ten of the units are reserved for homeless seniors.
