Gen­er­ous gift will keep ‘pre­mees’ warm

Stanstead’s prize-win­ning knit­ter Linda Durocher, I can call her that since she just brought home ten prize rib­bons for her knit­ting from the Ayer’s Cliff Fair on the week­end, gave a sur­prise do­na­tion to the CHUS’ neo-na­tal ward last month: 58 knit sets of tuques, mit­tens and booties for pre­ma­ture ba­bies. “I knit­ted them off and on dur­ing the spring and sum­mer. I have to have some­thing to do with my hands!” said the avid knit­ter.

One of her prize rib­bons from the Fair was a first place for a sweater set, her spe­cialty. “I’ll be giv­ing that sweater set to my new grand-daugh­ter,” said the happy grand-mother.

Stanstead knit­ter ex­traor­di­naire, Linda Durocher, do­nated 58 knit sets to the CHUS’ neo na­tal unit last month.
