AVID knitters from Dale Cottages’ Greendale Craft and Social Group have put their yarn spinning talents to good use, donating scarves to the annual Knit In for Anglicare appeal.

Earlier in the year, the group was approached by City of Armadale to decorate a tree in Jull Street Mall for the launch of the inaugural Armadale Arts Festival.

The City donated the wool and the group got busy, knitting 19 scarves of various colours and sizes to adorn the mall.

After the launch, the group wanted to donate the scarves to a worthy cause.

They gave them to organisers of the annual Knit In for Anglicare, just in time for winter.

Almost 650 beanies and 260 scarves were donated during this year’s appeal, with all items donated to the Salvation Army, Charity Link, St Albans and Shopfront WA.
