That is wonderful news Isabelle - we are all delighted. The others may have turned you down, but the Noisy Le Roi (love the name!) residents are certainly coming from their hearts - 308 squares is brilliant and other goodies too!
Don't forget to post some pics on the Photo tab! Do thank Corinne - we'd love to hear more!
no doubt I will have more news ! I was so thrilled, that I told the story to some parents at my kids school = more wool donation !
Love to see a table groaning with squares! You have not just thrown a pebble in the pond to ripple out Isabelle, but a great big rock! Well done, wonderful achievement.
Oh My a great contribution. Many thanks to Noisy le Roi !
Thanks for sharing this, Isabelle. What a win-win - you've found a way to give squares to our kids and purpose to some seniors!
What a wonderful story!! I love everything about it! Squares for our kids, dignity for the elderly - it's the best kind of story EVER!! Good job, Isabelle! I know personally how much some seniors get out of helping KAS. It's the first time many have felt "useful" in a long time. I'm so proud of you for helping them all!
This is a wonderful story I work in a nursing home and some of the ladies knit for KAS but the square are to small and I have to make them large. They can cope with to many stitches some have 25 and others have 30 keeps me busy!!!!
Well done Dawn for being so patient! I bet those ladies now feel valuable, and, it is wonderful that you ensure they squares are made 'whole'.
Fantastic result Isabelle. I hear time and time again from my ladies that they want to feel useful - we have said before that knitting for KAS is a win/win situation - everyone benefits.
