Isabel, a 5th grader, joins us from Lander Grinspoon Academy. She’s spearheading a local initiative to knit scarves and hats for the homeless. Isabel had the idea when on a trip to NYC where she ended up knitting with a group in Bryant Park who were knitting scarves and leaving them tied to benches for the homeless. On her way home, she knew she needed to do something similar in our area. There are three students in the knitting group working on it, and several others working on the project at home. On November 15th, they’ll be bringing them to a local park and leave them for those who need them.

If you’d like to help, simple scarves are preferred, in a superwash wool yarn. You can send your scarves to:
Lander Grinspoon Academy Scarf/Hat Project
6 Industrial Parkway
Easthampton, MA 01027

She’s been knitting since she was in 1st grade. Her grandmother taught her how to knit after sewing wasn’t quite working. Her first project was a scarf and she LOVES knitting them!

If you’re local, join the students on November 15th at 4:30pm in Pulaski Park, Northampton, MA to share.
