Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

The Lowell (MA) Sun had an article written by R. Sobey telling of Billy Pfaff and the Lowell Transitional Living Shelter. Billy owns Inkslingers Tattoos in Billerica and was once homeless. Now he collects gifts and knitted items, such as hats, mittons, blankets, etc. to give out to homeless folks. He had so many donated that he was able to give several gifts to each member of the shelter - about 90 or so... So... I am going to knit scarves and mittens and make sure he gets them in time for next Christmas to give out. This would be a good project for beginning knitters, children and adults, as scarves are easy to knit and the need is great.

As a child, I was encouraged to knit squares to be put together by adults into blankets for the soldiers (WWII). I felt SO patriotic and enjoyed the feelinig that I was doing "good."

Check the newspaper for a pic or two...
