“I call it knots of love,” Camilla Handy said as she crocheted a bright green scarf that will be sold to benefit the Shelter for Help in Emergency. “I pride myself on helping people, and I’ve been to that women’s shelter in the past myself seeking refuge, so this is a good cause.”

Handy, who learned to crochet when she lived in foster homes growing up, sat this week with other smiling women also busily knitting or crocheting around a table filled with a rainbow of colored yarns while soft music played in the background.
