Tehuacana knitter makes mat for homeless
Thanks to a Tehuacana woman, a homeless person will be able to sleep more comfortably. Margaret Day has just finished knitting plastic grocery bags into a 7-foot by 3-foot mat on which a sleeping bag may be placed for someone sleeping outdoors.
Day plans to donate the mat to a ministry for homeless people.
“We were thinking that Church Under the Bridge, in Waco, could probably find somebody that could use it,” Day said.
She got the idea for the project from her friend Angela Bailey, who saw it on Facebook.
Day used a size K crochet needle and a single crochet stitch, crocheting until she reached the 3-foot width then turning back to crochet to the other end. She continued until she reached the desired length, which was 7 feet.
