Knit for a Cause

In the past few months, ever since the Citizen's did the article on our Chemo Cap Project, I've been moved to tears with the genorosity of both knitter's and crocheter's in our community and beyond. We have had a generous donation of yarns for our project, and I can't even tell you the amount of hats that are coming in. We have the sweetest elderly lady, who knits a minimum of 1 hat, and sometimes 2 hats a day. Every couple of weeks, either her granddaughter or her daughter comes in with the bag of finished hats, and we load her up with more soft, light colored yarns.

This Sunday from 12-4 is our Knit for a Cause. We knit chemo hats, preemies hats, squares for Warm Up America, and even Project Linus blankets. If you feel moved, please come join us. Just bring #9 16" Circulars, #9 double points, and an open heart. We have donated yarn for you to use, or you might dig through your stash and find some yarn you'd be willing to part with. If you don't have time to join us, think about us the next time you are destashing. We always in need for more yarn and will accept donations of any smooth, soft yarn. We are able to take other types of yarns as well and use them for blankets, and even squares. We have many participants who have the time to knit but not necessarily the finances to help.

Thanks to all who joined us tonight for Knit and Nosh. I Love, love, love this night. Danielle (Not me, Danielle the owner of this fabulous little shop, but, Danielle a friend/customer from Pollock Pines) surprised us with the fabulous news that she'll be expecting a little bundle of joy next year. We are so excited for her. If you missed last night and want to join us next month, it's always the first Friday of the month from 5-9pm. Bring your current project/problem and a dish to share. We'd love it have you join us.
