Charity Knitting

She kinda made me rethink motives/priorities, but then I realized I have compassion and someone if only one person/animal shows happiness/warmth then my task is completed. Thank you.
Your are doing good productive work, lots of people love hand knitting but so many people cannot knit. This lady reminds me of the people from one of our affluent cities that give their old clothes and broken toys to chartiy drive and think they are being so good giving to quote 'those poor people'. Keep up your good work and enjoy what you do.
