We do this at Karingal in Tassie each Monday afternoon, and the group has grown from 2 - 14 each week. Lovely conversation group and they have produced such wonderful item for charity

We have this activity, fortnightly, depending on what project we have going at the time, it is a great interaction activity for staff and residents, our residents make things to sell on our craft stall and to put things in our local show, we have quite a big group now 12-15 somedays, they don't want the afternoon to finish, a big success

We do something similar at our facility however everything we make we donate to the local ronald mcdonald house & when we have a box of stuff the residents that made it make a trip & hand deliver it to the sick kids the residents love to see the little kids faces

This is a wonderful idea. At our Day Centre last year we knitted squares and made them into blankets for the animal welfare league and donated them. Also old blankets and towels were cut into smaller sizes so they could be used as towels to wash the shelter animals. we visited the centre with our clients and saw how the shelter was run and ofcourse the animals who would benenfit from the blankets in winter.
Now is the time to knit those squares ready for winter if any body else might be interested in doing the some sort of thing.
cheers debbie

Residents with the intention and interest for knitting gathering together for afternoon, could be themed by season, event, charity's, etc.
