an aritist must paint, a poet must write,
if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself"

Knitting for Peace Club: Knitting and crocheting are part of history and part of our present. It is the art of our grandmothers and a slice of American (and other) culture. My goal is to teach both staff and students how to knit and/or crochet with the understanding that new learners, as well as those of us who have knitted for some time, can give back through our love of knitting. Beyond our personal projects we aim to donate to organizations including Warm-Up America, The Linus Project, hats for preemies and others.
Every Spring and Fall we will run a drive for Warm-Up America. Simply knit or crochet a 7 x 9 inch "square" and send it (them) to me in the 9/10 building of SRHS. I and other club members will use the squares to create blankets to donate locally. All blankets will be counted with the National Organization, Warm-Up America. Go to Warmupamerica.com for more infomation on needle sizes, patterns and more.
****I will always accept knitted or crocheted squares for Warm Up America. GO to www.warmupamerica.org for more information. Send to C. Neil c/o Southern Regional High School, 600 North Main Street, or drop off in room 2-6 in the 9/10 bldg.***
