Knitting For Warmth

Knitting For Warmth is a network of caring people who donate yarn, knit or crochet squares, assemble & sew blankets and distribute the completed blankets to those in need. The grateful recipients of the blankets are: Minden Food Bank, 4 C’s in Haliburton, Children’s Aid, Point in Time, Area Fire Departments, Home Care, Hyland Crest, KHVC, Mcdonald House, SIRCH Special Delivery, Woodlawn Care, YWCA, and Lindsay’s A Place Called Home.
It is amazing the number of people that are involved in making this outreach ministry happen. People from all denominations and creeds contribute to this community ministry. It has been wonderful to learn that the actual knitting has been an important pastime for senior citizens wishing to feel helpful, patients in the hospital, children learning to knit, summer cottagers, Community Living Residents and people with a lifetime supply of wool ends (striped squares can be great looking too). Perfect knitting is not necessary (which is why we call it Knitting for Warmth, not beauty).
In November 2008, we celebrated making our 1,000th blanket since the group’s inception in early 2003!!! The first 1,000 blankets were made with over 30,000 squares donated by the community. The squares are portable being 8″ x 8″ (We suggest size 4.5 mm, 32 stitches for worsted weight). This is a worthwhile project for any church and note that it does not require money to run. Many of our Members and Adherents volunteer with this important community outreach program. All are Welcome! See the Announcement Page to contact the Project Manager.
