Hoosier Mania......downtown Bloomington!

I thought I had seen everything, but downtown Bloomington Indiana around the courthouse square people knitted these sweaters for trees. All for a very good cause.......

When my friend asked about the yarn covered trees she was told that a local yarn shop, Yarns Unlimited, has teamed up with Middle Way House to raise funds to aid victims of domestic violence.

This is the first year the fundraiser, Knitting to Heal, has been coordinated in Bloomington.

IU basketball Coach Tom Crean sponsored the IU tree that you see here ---you can see the label “The Crean Family” at the base of the tree.

This is what humanity is all about. Anyone who doesn't knit has no idea what went into this sweater. It was an awesome idea and what a worthy cause. Thanks to all of those who participated in this project. Thanks Annalee for the post.

Thank you to those who took a step forward to save the rest who stand still.

As a little girl, I lived there...And remember that town square...it is impressive. They raised quite a bit of money, $10,000 just for the IU tree by the Crean family. I don't knit, but I a fiber artist and educator... aka "Quilter" and can appreciate the time and talent it took to raise money for a worthy cause.
