ONGOING EVENTS

 

COVER UP! SPRING KNIT-A-LONG

It’s time for our annual Spring Knit Along, so spring must be coming.  It’s time to Commit to Knit or Book your Hook!

We’re being very open this year with our theme – Cover Up.  You can knit or crochet any cover up you like with any yarn you choose.  We’re thinking spring and summer, which brings cottons and blends to mind.  But a soft, light weight wool shawl is wonderful in an overly air conditioned restaurant.  You can make a poncho to cover up at the beach, a fancy shawl to wear out in the evening, a short sleeve summer cardigan in a soft cotton, or even an afghan to cover up a sofa.

Before the end of the month you need to come in, choose your yarn and tell us what pattern and yarn you’re using.  Then get out your needles or hooks and get started.

Our Show and Share Party will be Sunday, June 24, so you must be finished by then.  We’ll have our usual great food and fun.  Everyone who finishes their project by the 24th will be entered in the drawing for our door prizes and will also get one of our canvas Knit One, Stitch Too bags.

You don’t need to be present to win a prize but you’ll miss a good party.  If your project is a gift for someone and you need to give it before the party, we can take a picture of it and it will count as completed on time.  If you don’t know what to make, come on it and we can help you decide.  We have several kits that will work beautifully, and lots of pattern ideas and yarns to choose from.

KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT

We’re partnering with the Levine Cancer Institute to make and distribute Knitted Knockers for women who need breast prosthesis after surgery. Did you guess that we will make and they will distribute? Actually they have knitting and crochet groups that will be making them along with several church groups that knit and crochet for good causes, and our knitters and crocheters. The prosthesis can be crocheted, knitted in the round, or knitted flat. We’ll be happy to do the seaming and stuffing if you bring them to us. We are also collecting the finished knockers for deliverey to the Levine Cancer Institute for distribution to women who need them. We have several yarns that will make wonderful knockers, and will be happy to help you with any questions or problems. You can come in any time for that whether you bought your yarn here or not.

We’ll be hosting KNITTED KNOCKER NIGHT on the first Friday of every month from 3 pm to 9 pm. There’s no charge and all we’ll be doing is knitting or crocheting knockers, but – you know us – there may be a few surprises. If you don’t want to join us for the knitting, that’s fine. You can drop your knockers off any time the store is open. You can download the pattern at www.knittedknockers.org. If you aren’t able to do that, we can help you with one. We hope we can inspire lots of knitters and crocheters to make a pair or two for the women in our community who need them.
