Stricken für Babys - und für den guten Zweck / Knitting for Babies - and for Charity

I like to knit for my life. Like many others, I work in the office on the computer - tables, Word documents, presentations, all this in project work. It takes a long time. And in the end, you have nothing tangible as a result. Knitting is quite different: it is finished quickly, and you can look at and touch the result! And you can be creative. These are simply nice successes. And it relaxes me.

I knit for a good cause, because I mainly process wool donations from acquaintances and donate the net proceeds to a good cause (currently the Zollstocker Animal Shelter and the association Straßenkatzen e.V.). It started with my previous employer, who is very supportive of its employees' charitable work. That's where it started with the wool donations, which I turned into baby things for mother-child homes in Germany. When this became public, I got the most beautiful wool donations from everywhere! "Nice idea... I have something else... always wanted for me... I never got to it.... too bad to throw away..." And when I changed jobs, I was allowed to leave with three large boxes, under the condition that I continue knitting for a good cause.

To date (July 2018) there have actually been 111 jackets, hoodies and shoes - and I hope there will be many more so that I can continue to donate the money.
