Keep Families Warm with a Knitters’ Basket

Every year the Knitting Circle produces a wealth of knitted good which are auctioned off in a Silent Auction, with the proceeds going to worthy charities. One of the goals of this year’s Silent Auction is to donate a “Knitters’ Basket” to Heifer International, which provides live animals to families.

Heifer International’s Knitter’s Gift Basket includes a llama, an alpaca, a sheep, and an Angora rabbit. This gift for knitters also ensures families are instructed on how to properly feed and care for the animals.

Each Knitter’s Gift Basket:

  • Nourishes families with milk from the llama and sheep
  • Keeps families warm with wool that can be made into sweaters and scarves
  • Provides a source of income from the sale of clothing and blankets made from the wool

These four animals included in the knitting basket provide families with ample wool for warmth, as well as a source of income. The Silent Auction’s donation of a Knitter’s Gift Basket represents an opportunity for a better life.

Here are some of the items created by the Knitting Circle and available in the Silent Auction running up to this year’s Cookie Walk. This year the proceeds from the Silent Auction will go to two charities: Heifer International and the Christ Child Society of Baltimore.
