Rae McLymont, the tireless convenor of our local Wrap With Love effort, reports that her volunteer knitters, and those that sew up the squares and crochet the edges, have been hard at work this year.
“Eighty one have already sent to the Sydney warehouse for delivery to NSW and worldwide,” she says.
“It couldn’t happen without the participation of so many women throughout the community, and the wonderful help of the Kiama Library staff.”
She’s received completed wraps from Kiama and Oak Flats libraries, Gerringong Uniting Church and Jamberoo Red Cross knitters, as well as individual squares to be sew up.
She reminds anyone who would like to help with community project for the squares to be the same size 10” (25cm), with enough yarn when casting on and off for sewing up.
Details: Contact Rae on 4237 7984 if you are interested in helping.
Donations of 8 ply yarn are always welcome.
Like squares, they can be left at the Library.
Save the Date: Kiama Library is holding its annual Knit-In on the morning of 2 August. More detail in a future edition.
