Colorful skeins of wool have filled a classroom at Nassakeag Elementary School, as students have learned to use various looms to knit beautiful scarves for those in need.

Working within the school’s Looming Club and under the direction of adviser Linda Earls, the 25 student-members have been learning the craft since late October. Working on individual pieces, the club has already fashioned a number of scarves and a hat.

This February, they packaged more than 20 of their creations and sent them to the Long Island Coalition for the Homeless. The club will continue to work on donations during each of their meetings, which will run through the month of March.
