Knitting for Charity

Reporting:  Rabbit Zielke

Winter around the scenic city can get really chilly.  A hand knitted hat and scarf maybe just the thing to help keep the winter chill at bay.  Local knitting and yarn work guilds and groups work all through the year to deliver hand-made hats, scarves and afghans to charities around Chattanooga.  Many of these goods are destined to help warm the homeless during the cold winter.  If you knit or crochet and would like to get involved, the local groups would welcome you.  They are also willing to teach people the craft of knitting or crochet if you have an interest in learning.

Here is a list of some of the local churches hosting knitting groups and local knitting guilds:
