Experiences While Knitting a Blanket by Alicia Rapking
If you have read my articles over the past four years you will know that I am a knitter. I have been knitting off and on for most of my life, since the winter I turned five years old. When I first started knitting it was mostly to pass the time, since I was sick quite often that winter with repeated ear infections. It was a way to keep me both occupied and somewhat quiet, so that I could rest and heal.
The Parish House and Crosslines Inc. are always taking food donations.
Crop Hunger Walk
The Crop Walk will be at 1pm on October 5th in Jawbone Park!
