Knitters needed for needy
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.
