Knitting for Others members grabbed their knitting needles and wool in last year's lockdown to provide warmth and comfort to others across the region.
The group of 12 women collectively knitted and donated 705 items, that put smiles on the faces of children and adults at the Bowral and District Hospital.
"With Covid, people were still knitting at home," said group organiser Shonagh Moore.
"They were isolated and tucked away, so it was a very constructive time to make something beautiful."
Beanies, jumpers, vests, cardigans, scarves, knee rugs and matching jacket and hat sets were part of the long list of items that donated.
Trauma teddies, toy mice and rabbits, beanies, booties and blankets were also created for younger children and babies.
"We have always asked organisations what gifts are suitable to give," Mrs Moore said.
"They need to be practical for people."
Items were sent to the hospital's maternity and cancer wards.
Mittens were also specifically made for cancer patients.
"Cancer patients struggle with the cold, so it is important to keep them warm," Mrs Moore added.
Even before the pandemic, the knitting group not only had a positive impact on the Highlands community, but also for its members.
"Some of the women have been lonely, so this has been beneficial for them," Mrs Moore said.
Members would gather at Mittagong's Uniting Church to knit with a cuppa and some soup prior to lockdown.
"It has been good for widowed women, and women who have lost their relatives and need some company.
"It has been very therapeutic to get together, and give pleasure and comfort to others."
Mrs Moore said patients and staff alike have been thankful for their generosity.
"When we take it, people greet us and smile," she said.
"They even know me down at the maternity ward now."
Knitting for Others has also donated handmade items to Community Links in Tahmoor, retirement villages and Mission to Seafarers in Newcastle.
The group comes together on the first Tuesday of the month at the Uniting Church in Mittagong, and collects non-perishable items on the fifth Sunday of the month.
Next Tuesday's meeting is due to go ahead, with attendees being required to wear masks, and bring their own mugs and food.
Mrs Moore added that wool donations were always welcomed.
