SOCKS FOR CENTENARY: KNITTING WORKSHOPS

CALLING ALL KNITTERS!

During World War I, Red Cross initiated knitting socks for the troops. Australia-wide, local organisations, schools, church groups, knitting circles and individuals banded together to undertake the huge task of providing ‘comforts to Australian troops’. More than 1 million pairs of socks were knitted during the war.
As a tribute, the City of Sydney is encouraging people to knit a pair of socks, following the Red Cross 1914 pattern and send them to be a part of ‘Socks for Centenary’. All socks will be donated to the Wayside Chapel, Kings Cross.
Beginners through to experienced knitters are welcome. We have some needles available, but encourage you to bring along your own. Please bring your own wool.

When: Between Thursday 19 February and Thursday 05 March from 17.30 to 19.30

Where: Surry Hills Library, 405 Crown Street Surry Hills 2010
