Show en Tell this week & "knitting for cool kids"

I have had a wonderful three days of work.  Customers have been bringing in their completed crafts (best part of the job).  Check out these photos.

SOOOOOOOOOO cute.  Knitting broach. 

Our speedy knitter - Janice.
Full story below.
I joined a Facebook page "Knitting for Cool Kids" six months ago.  It currently has 126 members and not all of them live in New Zealand.  The objective is to knit scarves, beanies, mittens/gloves and slippers for children who attend the lower decile primary schools (lower income areas).  Once you become a member, there are patterns available within the group.  Its awesome - great way to use up left over yarn, knit a quick project and do some good at the same time. 
Janice is a regular customer who just loves knitting and crotchet.  Today she dropped of her fifth load of knitwear - 4 scarves, 2 beanies, 13 pairs of slippers and 15 pairs of fingerless gloves.  Go Janice.

Happy stitching friends.
