Colorado High School Students Knitting Scarves

This story was on Colorado Public Radio this morning during NPR's Morning Edition. The audio will be available later this morning online at KCFR.

It's a great story about students knitting (and learning to knit) scarves to send to students at other high schools where there's been a tragedy (e.g. school shooting). Includes an interview with a male student who learned to knit to participate in the project.

Hey that is great! But you should see my class of grade three's. I taught all 18 of them to knit. 9 boys. We are making slippers and face cloths for a charity house where women from out of town stay in our city for breast cancer treatment. There are some pics in the gallery. Neat.
