The Joppa Flats Education Center gift shop is offering a unique line of gifts, created through an unusually productive collaboration between birders and knitters. Hand-knit hats, mittens, scarves, cowls, and more are pouring in to Joppa Flats as donations, straight from the knitting needles of volunteers recruited via knitting networks.
