Monster Strong

Once upon a time, my sister and I were talking about a situation a friend of ours was facing. It wasn’t pretty and I felt pretty powerless to do anything to make things better.  All I could think was that I wanted to do SOMETHING, that I couldn’t sit still and do nothing. I believe the words I uttered were “Sometimes bad things happen to people and… well… I know how to knit.”

Last week something terrible happened to a lot of people. Something no child, or adult should ever have to go through. And as I watched the news unfold I felt powerless to do anything and yet desperately wanted to do SOMETHING.

Out of this 600 Monsters Strong for Connecticut was born. I didn’t organize it, but I am insanely grateful and proud to be a knitter and to be part of the group from its very beginnings. If you’re a knitter or a crocheter check it out and join us.
