The last Tuesday of the month K4BN has a Knit and Natter at the Zillmere Community Centre. Today I took my camera to capture some of the action. As well as the group of women who sit around the long tables, knitting, crocheting and chatting, there is also a constant stream of people who just drop off big bags of donations. I never ceased to be amazed by the amount that is collected from this K&N. Today a large number of donated toiletry bags (filled with toiletry items) were handed in as well as all the knitted and crocheted items.
Here's the entrance to this busy community centre...
|Jenny holds up one of the crocheted blankets that came in today...|
|Some of the many bags of donated items, waiting to be sorted...|
|Elaine holds up the tartan crocheted blanket that she made....|
|This member showed us the children's beanies she has made; ranging from premmie size up|
|This is another one of Elaine's blankets; this one is made up of 9 squares with 24 rounds. Clever Elaine, less sewing up required with BIG squares!|
|This is Elizabeth holding up her knitted blanket. Knitted with scraps and odd balls , about 300 stitches on circular needles :-)|
|These gorgeous crocheted toys were dropped off by a donor this morning|
|Starting to sort donations; Jenny and Elaine did this today instead of Karen having to do it at home.|
|A view of the busy room....|
|Blankets packed into the bags ready for recipients/organisations etc that help the needy|
|There are a lot of activities for the indigenous community in this centre and today this didgeridoo player dropped in to our room to give a short recital. he was great and he was so thrilled by our enthusiastic clapping when he'd finished.|
|And this is another blanket that I've made from the donated squares.|
