dc.description.abstractThe first record of humanitarian knitting in NZ relates to the Onehunga Ladies Benevolent Society which was formed in 1857 to feed and clothe women and children who were evacuated to Onehunga from Waiau Pa across the Manukau Harbour during the land wars in the northern Waikato. (Nicholson, 1998). This set a pattern which endures. The organisation still exists and is the oldest women’s organisation in Australasia.en_NZ
