Knits & Pieces

Delivered this week:

  • 6 pairs of mittens to Walker School
  • 7 pairs of mittens and 2 hats to Headstart at WaldoCAP
  • 6 hats to Belfast Soup Kitchen
  • Several scarves to Triad to be distributed to senior citizens in Waldo County

Thank you for all the donations!

Cold weather is not over yet this winter. We are still collecting small sized mittens for the Head Start children. See their “thank you” pictures displayed at the library.

Simple 2-needle mittens: 3-4 yrs,  4-6 yrs, & 6-8 yrs.
A simple pattern for hats can be found here. Watch cap pattern.  Bear Hat pattern.

We also collect yarn and needles for Jen Gunderman who delivers these to organizations assisting New Mainers transitioning to life in Maine. They in turn make hats and mittens for other refugees who are in camps awaiting permission to be allowed into other countries to begin making new lives for themselves and their families.

Several knitters are getting together informally to knit (and other crafts) and chat on Wednesday mornings at 10:00 at the library. Anyone is welcome to join them.
