The Osborn Knitters, 14-strong, gather weekly to make shawls, blankets, hats, and other handcrafted items, which are donated to local charities. While sharing their time and knitting and crocheting talents, they share ideas, cement friendships and make new ones, and catch up on all the news at Sterling Park, the Independent Living community at The Osborn.

“This work means a lot to us,” says new resident Mrs. Regina Slawek. Other residents add, “Crafting items that help others gives them a sense of purpose.

For some time, The Osborn Knitters have been making healing blankets for chemotherapy patients at Greenwich Hospital, and recently began knitting caps for them. A copy of the pattern is available to anyone who wishes to join in the endeavor.
