Mitzvah Knitters is a group of volunteers that knit and crochet items for donation. Group members make scarves, hats and blankets for the homeless; lap blankets and shawls for those undergoing chemotherapy; baby blankets for newborn and premature babies; and scarves for the Texas Special Olympics team.
This year the colors for the Special Olympic scarves were red, white and blue. Pictured is only a small sample of the scarves Mitzvah Knitters made.
Anyone who wants to be a part of the friendly group is welcome to join Mitzvah Knitters at the Shalom Austin Jewish Community Center on Fridays at 10 a.m. The group also welcomes donations in order to continue buying the yarn for these worthy projects. Mitzvah Knitters also accepts donations of yarn. ■
