The Ballard Knitters continue to whip out the warmies

Knitting in cold weather is one way to keep your fingers warm!

In the month of January the Sustainable Ballard Knitters for the Homeless knit & donated 57 hats, 26 scarves, 1 pair of mittens, and 7 lap robes. February looks to be wet, too, and even colder so we need to keep up the pace!

Ballard Knitters for the Homeless – 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. Come enjoy the opportunity to create and keep others warm through the winter.

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.

Project Contact: Jody Grage

If you have yarn to donate, email Jody. And thanks!!!
