After Dorothy Rose of Vintondale learned of local knitting and crochet groups’ need for yarn for worthy projects, the 85-year-old took it upon herself to do something.
An article in The Tribune-Democrat called attention to the efforts of Knit Wits and Hooked on Crocheting. The groups meet at the Cambria County Library’s 55+ Classic Corner and create baby hats to be donated to newborns and lap robes for the elderly.
“I saw in the paper that they needed yarn,” Rose said.
A 66-year-member of Pike Grace Brethren Church in Mundys Corner, she though perhaps her church could help her collect yarn to donate.
“My son is an elder (in the church) so I went to him,” she said. “He thought it would be OK if I asked my Sunday school class to support me.
“The class was behind me and a notice ran in the (church) bulletin for four Sundays in a row.”
Rose collected several bags of yarn and donated them to the library.
