Knitzilla! is an all-ages, all-genders group of yarn addicts who believe in supporting their worldwide community, often through craft. Knitzilla!’s have supported hurricane Katrina survivors, Asian tsunami survivors and others around the world who could use a little warmth in their lives. The first picture above is a child’s sweater created by an LA knitter named Ans (her own design) with cotton yarn donated by Edna Hart , and some mind-boggling seaming by Katherine. Knitzilla auctioned the sweater on E-bay and the money supported www.tsunamivolunteer.net, which is working with tsunami survivors in Khao Lak, Thailand. Currently Knitzilla! is knitting and crocheting Rad Bad Beanies for urban teens in outdoor mentoring programs through Big City Mountaineers as can be seen in the second photo. The two brown hats (in upper right hand corner) donated by Carol from Hawaii and the remaining four are knitted by Whitney from LA with yarn donated by The Knitter’s Studio. Each year they salute these community givers by raffling donated items to those who have given back. If you believe in supporting your worldwide neighborhood through knit and crochet fiber art, join Knitzilla! online. Or if you happen to be in the Los Angeles area, come out and meet the group at a Silverlake knit night! Link.
