You may have seen knitted scarves and hats on the Downtown Anderson statues recently. But, you also may have wondered how they got there in the first place.
The Black Sheep knitters are a group that made the hats and scarves by hand. People who need them are invited to take them, and the knitting group will be happy to replace them on the statues.
According to a member of their Facebook page, “This is our gift to the community which, hopefully, will bring smiles and even keep a person warm.” They were also featured in the Anderson Observer to discuss their plan.
We at The Powell Group hope you are keeping warm during the holiday season, and we commend The Black Sheep Knitters for helping our community.
