Knit and Knatter

Second and Fourth Monday from 2pm

Knitting for Moree’s homeless Just one square turns into a woollen blanket of love – that’s what the members of the Moree Community Library’s Knit and Natter group are celebrating during Homelessness Awareness Week.

Knit and Natter Coordinator Clare Gately explained many people find themselves homeless as a result of family and domestic violence; and then experience financial and emotional hardship.

“A knitted or crocheted woollen blanket provides physical warmth to people and gives them an emotional boost because the squares that form the blankets have been made by community members who care about their situation,” said Ms Gately.

The Knit and Natter group meet the second and fourth Monday of the month at 2pm for an hour in the warmth of the Library. Each person freely gives of their time and donates the wool to make the squares.

“Members share ideas and patterns, teach newbies, give support and friendship to fellow volunteers, and together create blankets which Rotary distributes to people in Moree Plains Shire.”

“Anyone can join Knit and Natter, from beginner knitters to people with skills in crocheting. We even have people who can’t come to the sessions, but just send in their squares they have knitted at home,” said Ms Gately. Come along to the next Knit and Natter on 8 August – there is some 8ply wool/acrylic and needles/hooks available for newbies or you can build your own 25mm x 25mm (imperial 10” x 10”) square at home following instructions on www.wrapwithlove.org/knitting-patterns/
