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!!!
