Carol Corry just wants people to be warm. The Huntsville woman gets out in the cold to walk and snowshoe several times a week with friends and doesn’t like the idea of anyone being cold when they don’t need to be. So she took her overflowing stash of wool and put it to good use, knitting more than 40 scarves for anyone to take if they are feeling the cold.
Corry is a regular volunteer around town and supporter of local charities, giving her time, energy or donations to Muskoka Landing, The Table Soup Kitchen, and Hospice Huntsville to name a few. She and a group of women from All Saints’ Anglican Church also make lap quilts for residents at local nursing homes and patients at Huntsville Hospital’s chemotherapy clinic.
“I’m not one to just sit,” said Corry, who made the scarves over last winter. “I had all this wool and I thought it would be a good idea to do something so people could be warm.”
The scarves are displayed on a rack in front of the Algonquin Theatre for anyone to take whenever they need one.
