Tonight we received another lovely "gift" - a story from Jeremy's Aunt Martha - about her donations of hundreds of knitted mitts and socks to those in need. Thanks to her skillful knitting needles, not only have many strangers benefitted from her generosity, but many lucky family members as well! Thanks Aunty Martha for your generosity and for helping to ensure everyone's fingers and toes are toasty warm in the winter.
Act of Kindness Story submitted by Martha Borst:
I learned to knit many years ago from my mother, Rosalie Splett, Jeremy's grandmother. Over the years I can't begin to count up how many wool socks, mitts, hats, scarves, and afghans I have completed. Since returning to Canada from USA in 2006 l'm sure I've knit over 500 pairs of mittens. I have donated to Selkirk abused women's shelter and via the church ladies group to a Ukraine orphanage. One other thing is that since people have learned that I love to knit as a pastime they donate leftover yarn from their projects or else I find great bargains at garage sales. I have shared my projects with family members and friends. I think Jeremy and Joanna both have a pair of wool socks that I've given them.
