KNOT November Meeting

The November and December KNOT meetings will be combined and held on December 3rd from 6:00-8:00. We will be holding our Annual Holiday Knitting meeting at an alternative location (TBD). Look out for a KNOT flyer for more details about the KNOT Holiday Knitting meeting. Please consider kitting an item for donation to the Montgomery County Women’s Shelter. We will be collecting items at the Holiday Knitting Meeting on December 3rd. Tote bags, toiletries, women & children’s hats, scarves and shawls would be much appreciated during this upcoming cold season.

Spring Charity Event

The next KANG event will be held on April 27,  2019, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at the Kingwood Medical Center. 

The theme of the knit-in is Hats for Charity.   We will be knitting and accepting hats for preemies, children, women, and men, along with the Head Start hats.  We have a special request for preemie hats and blankets for the fetal bereavement program at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital in Houston.  Bev’s Baby Rib Hat for 2-3 pound preemies is a good option, and Micro Preemie Hats for the smallest babies.  Blankets should be 20″ – 22″ square.  Color is not a concern, but please stay away from brown, black, and solid white.  We will pass out tickets for the number of items brought to the event and will draw for prizes.   
 
There will be a featured speaker for the Head Start hat program, along with the area coordinator for Knitted Knockers.  We will also have a silent auction for our donated, high-quality yarn which is not suitable for charity knitting.  Plus, bring a knit or crochet related wrapped gift for a special, fun game ($10 – $15 limit), and canned or non-perishable items for donation to a local food pantry.  All auction proceeds and donated food items will go to Humble Area Ministries.
 
KIK will provide hot coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, plus bottled water.  Please bring finger foods to share.
 
If you would like to donate yarn for charity use, it must be worsted weight, machine washable and dryable.  Small quantities of yarn are acceptable as long as they meet the above stated requirements.

KNOW Meeting – Weird and Wonky to Wonderful!

At our KNOW meeting on Monday, October 29, Janet Madden will present her program, “Weird and Wonky to Wonderful—Bash the Stash for Charity Knitting!”  You will learn about the charitable organizations and related projects sponsored by each chapter, score some patterns, hear a few stories, and maybe find a new use for that strange skein stored somewhere in your stash. Bring yarn and needles to match.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired!  Please plan to attend what promises to be a very enjoyable and worthwhile program. 

Fall Charity Knit-in

Come join us and knit or crochet for charity on October 6th, from 8 to 12 at St Anne de Beaupre Catholic Church, 2810 Link Road, Houston, 77009.
