Knit and Chatter Group Resumes at LMV
With small-group activities opening up again at Landmark Village, a favourite program amoung those with a flair for knitting is once again being offered, the residents have been very busy working on some creative projects. The Knit and Chatter group was launched a few years ago to encourage residents to meet and practise their hobby. Currently they have 6 residents who really enjoy knitting and are very envolved in this program. Brent Hart the Fun Co-ordinator recently found a pattern for a project called "worry worms". Worry worms are used to promote random acts of kindness, Brent says. "People knit a worm out of yarn and then leave them around with a nice saying". Amoun the group's successes is the "mitten tree" which is created every Christmas at Landmark Village. During the holiday season, the Knit and Chatter members will knit scarves, hats and mittens that are pinned to the tree instead of ornaments. These items are then donated to families in need in the local community.
