Wool on Sunday...

My Wool on Sunday post for this month is about the K4BN Knit and Natter that I went to last week at Zillmere. When I first started attending this Knit and Natter at the Zillmere Community Centre, the group would be allocated a tiny room with very inefficient aircon. Now we get a very spacious room and that aircon is working well. ( a previous state government reduced funding to a number of community groups, including some who used this Centre and these groups no longer can afford to use their allocated rooms...their loss was our charity's gain.) 

 
At Zillmere, two members sort all the donations brought in to the meeting, count them, record them and then repack the items ready to go to the storage shed. I took some photos of Jenny and Elaine repacking those blankets I'd made from donated squares.
 
The final count for last Tuesday's donations was 181 items and a lot of them were blankets.
Linking this post with Janine's Wool on Sunday over on her Rainbow Hare blog. Janine's post this moth features a lovely baby cardigan she has just finished knitting.

Great effort by all - I have a long road trip coming up so I hope to at least get a couple of squares made for you.

it is so good to see all these makes usually out of odd scarps of wool etc that might have just been thrown away of there was not a project to donate to

One of my Great Aunts used to live over at Zillmere! We used to live on the south side so it always seemed such a long way to visit lol

181 items! You are almost a factory. I'm always awed by you generous ladies. It's interesting to see the next stage with all the knitting and crochet goodies bagged up and ready to off into the world. Thank you very much for linking up with Wool on Sundays :)
