Giano Middle School students knit holiday presents
Posted: 12/13/2009 San Gabriel Valley Tribune
Grandma always knitted us mittens for Christmas. The soft, colorful mitts were a labor of love and part of our Swedish heritage.
We still have these handcrafted memories. Though they now fit her great-great-grandchildren, the mittens still mean as much to us as they did that Christmas day many years ago.
Today, holiday presents are mass produced items bought at a big box store. And few young people learn how to knit, let alone take the time to handcraft a present for others.
Unless, of course, they're students in the leadership class at Giano Middle School in West Covina.
