Knit­ters needed for needy

Southern Telegraph - - News - Ar­ran Mor­ton

Vis­i­tors to Rock­ing­ham li­braries are en­cour­aged to dust off their knit­ting nee­dles and have a go at craft­ing squares of wool to be made into blan­kets for the needy.

Rock­ing­ham Com­mu­nity Cam­pus Li­brary li­brar­ian Deb Ham- blin said com­mu­nity mem­bers had been gen­er­ous in do­nat­ing their time and skills to the ef­fort for the Knit­ters Anony­mous ini­tia­tive, which is now ac­tive at the four City of Rock­ing­ham li­braries.

Mrs Ham­blin said knit­ters had been asked to con­trib­ute a 3cm square to be made into blan­kets later. “The more we can do, the bet­ter,” Mrs Ham­blin said.

“It’s very re­lax­ing and lots of peo­ple have been very in­ter­ested in tak­ing part.”

Rock­ing­ham mum Echo Yang said it had been sev­eral years since she had at­tempted to knit, but had en­joyed re­dis­cov­er­ing the craft while her four-year-old son Enzo Ma­honey en­joyed story time at Rock­ing­ham Com­mu­nity Cam­pus Li­brary.

Mrs Ham­blin en­cour­aged com­mu­nity mem­bers to pop into Rock­ing­ham Com­mu­nity Cam­pus, Safety Bay, Warn­bro or Mary Davies li­braries to take part.
