What is LUTH ?  LUTH stands for Light Up the Hills.   Light UP the Hills a community program that takes place each December in Georgetown, Ontario, when the Park in the middle of Town lights up with festive lights for the month of December.

Last year our Knitter's Guild, Halton Hands in Motion, participated by knitting/crocheting yarn installations throughout Dominion Gardens Park.  Lamp post cozies were knitted up in candy cane strips and many of the trees along the pathways were adorned with tree cozies.

A quote from our local paper last year ..."This fibre-focused project aims to deliver visual interest for those walking through the park, while communicating the value of shared experiences and community partnerships."  One of our guild members who heads up the "community" aspect of our Guild, Caitlin, organized the event and did a fabulous job.

Our Guild is again participating in Light Up the Hills.    My contribution for this year's event is crocheted.   I had two large balls of acrylic bulky yarn in two shades of green.   I crocheted up various sizes/shapes of granny squares and flowers and hand sewed together.   I also knitted up a candy cane tree cozy.

Each year that our Guild Participates, our installations will grow.
