Condon, and her two-helper elves, brought piles of mittens to help keep hands warm over the coming winter.
Condon says she donates the mittens to two local churches each year for their mitten trees. However even with those mittens going out the door, she says there were still piles of them around the house.
It was in talking with her neighbour Kelly Oxner, who is also the manager at QASL, that she decided the clients and staff would be the perfect place to donate some mittens.
Faces lit up as each client came over to pick a pair of mittens. A few zeroed in on their favourite colours, pink and purples or black and green. The array of colours to choose from meant everyone managed to find ones that suited them perfectly.
Many thank yous were given to Condon that day, along with many smiles.
She says depending on her mood, she can usually knit three pairs of mittens every two weeks. Just a few weeks ago, she finished her 2,000th pair. Condon says she’s been knitting for 50 years, starting out knitting mittens for her own children when they were growing up.
