Anna Strasser, friend of Dark Matter and Curator/Director for How ___ Made Me A Better Feminist, has been knitting scarves for Syrian refugees living in Munich as they prepare for the harsh winter. We are so proud to be working with her!
Strasser and other knitters across the United States and Canada made almost a thousand hats, scarves and other knitwear that were shipped to Germany to help refugees.
The project began two months ago, when knitting designer Laura Nelkin put out the call to fellow hobbyists. A doctor in Munich coordinated the distribution to refugees and photos of the giveaway soon went viral on knitting websites.
