Knitting with Seniors

Kudos to LionBrand for donating 10 skeins of Kitchen Cotton and 10 pairs of needles to So Others Might Eat, a non-profit organization serving low-income and homeless citizens of Washington, D.C. My knitting hobby has never been more gratifying than it was this past week when I shared my skills with senior citizens at the So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.) Summer Camp in West Virginia. My star pupil was a 79-year-old first-time knitter who completed a dishcloth. The picture of Nellie tells it all! I hope to volunteer at a senior center in D.C. during the year and return to Summer Camp next year.
