Summer Knitting

Looking for portable summer projects? Our Caps for Kids project takes top  priority since we have a September deadline. Not a hat knitter? Consider knitting for one of our ongoing charities listed at left. 


Caps for Kids

We have joined with a sister

knitting group in Mt. Airy to

provide hats for next winter to

all 400 students who attend

a Philadelphia elementary

school. Knit patterns (See our

pattern’s tab). Crochet favs:

Ruth’s & Peggy’s Cluster & Quick caps. [Not one to

follow patterns precisely, my current favorite finishing

is the crab stitch.]


We have received a large donation of acrylic yarn. It is to be used for charity projects. If you need yarn, contact Peggy to arrange pick up.


Sue K sent us one more suggestion. Another stash-buster! Knit Nests for baby birds to assist NSCC.

Yarn Donations for Women in Need

Too much yarn? Need to destash? Consider donating to the knitting program at Interim House. A weekly knitting session is a regular part of therapy for all residents, and they rely entirely on donated yarn and supplies. They can use knit-able yarn of any thickness or fiber content and in any quantity (but clean and untangled please). Bring to our Monday meeting or contact Peggy for pick up.

Our anniversary potluck was held on May 20. Many thanks to everyone who participated in another lovely evening with friends.

Per usual picture taking was soon forgotten as everyone arrived carrying delicious delectables. If you have pictures to share, send them to me. Till then, there are a few in our album.
