Tassels

Knitting does of course help, it allows thoughts to be thought and for the pain to be processed. It is soothing and my therapy. The nights and mornings are getting a little cooler though not yet cold and soon the winter will be upon us. Many in Christchurch are still without power and I thought perhaps a simple gesture would be the way to show my depth of feeling for these people I call my own.
It takes four hours and about 110 metres of yarn to whip up a beanie. That seems very little in the grand scheme of things but it is something and so I have begun a beanie binge.
I will knit as many of these as I can over the next few weeks and send them to Christchurch were they will hopefully keep someone warm and remind them people do care.

I think that is such a thoughtful thing to do. And, I know it is going to help you feel you are doing something. Bless you!

What a great way to contribute to those who have lost so much ~ your generosity will be much appreciated. When I lived in a cold climate seeing those without a hat seemed the most in need. (Hugs)

Bravo. I'm sure they'll be greatly appreciated by those still without power, homes, etc.
