“In 2008, there was café morning, and I think it was a senior week, so I went down to see what was going on. Suddenly I was handed needles and some wool, and that was the end of the story. Since then it’s just become my new hobby. You know, we’d do this at home anyway, but here we get tea and great company. There are times when 6 of us are just chatting about fresh gossip next to a warm mug of tea! And we do it for a great cause. We’re knitting the hats on smoothie bottles and Age Action receive 30 cents after every bottle sold. Knitters all over Ireland are working on it and last year we even made it in the Guinness World Records with the greatest number of hanging knitted garments!”
