In October, the women from our partner agencies learned how to finger knit!

Using just a pair of scissors and an old t-shirt, we taught how to cut the t-shirt in such a way to create one long strip of fabric that can be rolled into a ball yarn.

Then, using just their fingers, they turned that ball of yarn into a beautiful knit cord.

The women at Lydia’s House knitted multiple colors together, and the women at Center for Women in Transition turned their knit cord into belts, bracelets, headbands and scarves.
