The Knitting Project is off to a great start! Every second Wednesday lunchtime, girls’ middle school students have a meeting to knit squares to make blankets for the Fitzroy Drop-In Centre for those who are homeless.
We aim to have knitted 240 squares (or 6 blankets) by the 20th of July. We welcome help from the wider community, and hope that you can aid us in reaching our goal by donating wool, or knitting squares.
If you can donate wool, we use 8ply wool, preferably in dark colours.
As for knitting squares, the squares are 20 x 20cm using 4mm knitting needles and 8ply wool or yarn.
Any donations and squares are much appreciated and can be placed in one of the Knitting Project donation boxes in the girls’ middle school building, handed into Main Reception, or given personally to Molly, Nicolani or Rose (Year 9).
Hope you can help!
