Do you enjoy knitting? If you do, please join me in knitting some warm goodies for the homeless.

I enjoy the meditative effect that knitting has, but personally don’t need another scarf! So a few years ago, I started a project called Knitting & The City.

I have extra yarn and needles if you want to help out but are lacking supplies. I also have a handy dandy how-to knit sheet if you need a skills refresher.

Like I said in the video, I only knit straight and am able to make scarves and hats, so you don’t need to be a knitting genius to help out.

I am accepting mailed donations here but also, feel free to donate your wares to your local homeless shelter.

Beyond keeping the physical body warm, giving a handmade gift to someone who may not be used to it is a truly heartwarming thing.

If you want more information, please email me at rachel – at- You can mail your goodies to Rachel Andrews, PO Box 78, Southbury, CT 06488.

Thank you and Merry Holidays!
