VETERAN knitter Ann Foster is no stranger to clicking her needles in the service of kindness.
She has been casting on since she was five years old and recalls sitting in her classroom during the war knitting khaki squares to weave into rugs and send off to soldiers.
These days she is part of the Tamworth Library Knitters Group and is still using her knitting skills for a good cause – the Australia-wide Wrap With Love project. The project asks volunteers to donate knited squares that are sewn together into rugs to bring a little colour and warmth to the less fortunate.
Ms Foster said the group had already made 60 rugs and the Tamworth library was a drop-off point for people who have knitted squares at home.
