The Lawrence Headquarters Branch Knitting Circle and Crochet Corner donated a variety of scarves, hats, mittens and even shoes to HomeFront on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019.

Residents at HomeFront will be a little warmer this winter thanks to the generosity of the Lawrence Library knitting circle.

Belinda Silver, a member of the Lawrence Library knitting circle, initiated a community drive at the library to collect handmade scarves, hats and mittens to be donated to HomeFront.

This is the knitting circle’s seventh year of organizing the collection drive. The knitters made a wide variety of scarves, mittens and adult and children’s hats.
