Charity Knitting – February 2023 Update

Hello Charity Knitters!
We had a great turn out for our January Knit-Together at Karbach Brewery. We collected woolen objects for the Ukraine project. Those were sent off to the coordinators. All totaled, we collected 90 items for Ukraine; 85 hats (various sizes) and 5 cowls.  
Great work to those who managed to knit a quick hat. Kudos for Barbara Haas for finding that link for us. Hopefully everyone saw the pictures posted on Facebook and Instagram.
Our next charity knit-together will be at No Label Brewery in old Katy on Sunday 26 February from Noon to 3 PM.
NOTE: Some folks heard it was the 19th of February but it had to be changed due to unforeseen circumstances.

Noon – 3 PM
It is winter, so same rules as last time apply.  If it is less than 55 degrees or raining; we will cancel. If it is above 55 degrees and not raining, we will be there; dress for the weather.
Is this your first-time coming out to a Knit-together? Wondering how you will find us and if you will know anyone? 
Here are some answers…
  • Sarah and Marie usually arrive about 10-15 minutes prior.
  • You will find us by the big Teal suitcase full of charity yarn. (We are usually the only people in the brewery with a suitcase)
  • We welcome knitters who are new to KANG or have not attended a Knit-together before.  
  • We are all a little shy and socially awkward in our own way, but you will find that conversation comes easy when we talk about our knitting projects.
  • You can come out to drop off completed work and pick up more yarn, only
  • You can drop off your completed work and sit and knit (or crochet, or needle point, or weave) with us for a bit
  • You don’t need to finish your project in 3 hours. Take it home, finish it, and show up at our next Knit-Together to drop it off!
What to bring?
  • Your tools (needles, hooks, markers, hoops, looms, etc).
  • (optional) a chair. Some folks don’t like sitting at the picnic tables. 
  • (optional) a pattern. We have a few patterns printed, but feel free to work whatever pattern you like.
What to make:
  • hats
  • gloves/mittens
  • scarves/cowls
  • Peyton hearts
  • Warm-up America squares
  • blankets
  • slippers
  • stuffed toys
  • socks
  • sweaters (especially baby and child, which are much faster to make)
