We’re challenging the wet and cold with needles and yarn…
Ballard Knitters for the Homeless virtual knitting gatherings are small. As knitting needles click the warmies continue to come in – 51 hats, 4 scarves, 5 lap robes, and 1 pair of mittens already this month. Our total for the pandemic year of 2020 was 290 hats, 136 scarves and 17 lap robes, so we’re off to a great start!
Who we are: people who have never knit before, people who haven’t knit in a long time, and people who are knitting pros! We are happy to teach you to knit or work on a new pattern, and it’s okay if there are mistakes – they’re just as warm and it shows some sincerity.
How to participate: Come enjoy the opportunity to create and keep others warm through the winter. Bring knitting needles size 9 or 10 and extra yarn to share if you have some – but don’t buy any because we have a stash!
When we meet: Third Tuesday of every month, 7pm – 9pm normally at The Dane, but virtually during COVID restrictions. Contact Jody for the Zoom link.
Who we donate to: Nyer Urness House, Cheryl Chow Court, the Bridge Care Center, and the Ballard Urban Rest Stop.
