Otaki knitters – mystery project



There’s a mystery group of women busily knitting decorative squares to “dress” some of the trees around the Otaki railway and downtown shopping centres.

The Otaki Mail team spied them busily at their work over morning tea at the Riverstone Café recently, working on the 170 squares for needed for their next yarn bombed tree – location is their secret, but watch out for more gaily dressed trees around the town!

Knitter, Debbie Carson said they would welcome more knitters to help with their task, each square is 30×30 centimetres and can be any colour and any design you choose. The only stipulation: no wool, only synthetic yarns please. They would also welcome any donations of synthetic yarns you may have hidden in a bottom drawer or forgotten knitting bag, Debbie can be contacted on phone 364 6543

Busily knitting are Meagan Roach and Debbie Carson, while Carol Ward, Marilyn Orchard and Dorothy Riddell pack up the completed squares at the end of a mornings session
