Knitting Our Lives Together

My students need knitting needles as well as washable cotton and acrylic yarns in a variety of colors for a knitting club.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach at a high-need public high school in New York with a focus on college preparation. Many of our students are interested in clubs but, given the budget crisis, it is difficult for our school to fund anything beyond classroom necessities. The poverty rate at our school is approximately 75% and parents struggle to provide the basics for their children.

I am a knitter and I wear many of my creations to school on a regular basis; scarves, hats, sweaters, tank tops, socks, and shawls rotate through the seasons. Students often ask about my hand knit items and have expressed interest in learning to knit. I would like to start an after school knitting club but do not have yarn and needles to go around.

Extra-curricular activities are important in the college admissions process and help students develop self-esteem, manage stress, and learn new skills. As part of a knitting club, my students will be empowered to produce hand knit items for charity and for themselves. We need knitting needles and washable yarns in a variety of colors to get our fledgling club off the ground.

Your help will make it possible for my students to join an after-school knitting club. In the process, they will practice math skills, design clothing, provide for others, develop their resumes for college, and make friends. Thank you for your support!
