Havelock knitting group gives gifts to deploying Marines

"We just call ourselves the knitters," Roberts said of the eight to 20 group members that come together from 9 a.m. to noon every Tuesday at the Havelock Senior Center.

"It’s just a fun group that gets together every Tuesday morning. Anyone who wants to knit or to crochet is welcome to join us," Roberts said.

Emily Paley said the women make a big difference in the military community.

"Each of the blankets is unique and individual, just like each of the Marines that are going," she said.

Roberts said cards will be sent with the Afghans.

"There is a message in there from us to let them know how much we’re thinking of them and praying for them," she said.
