Charity Knitting – Oct 2023 Update

Hello charity crafters!

The Knit at Night Guild is pleased to announce the next charity knitting/crochet event to be held on Sunday, October 22nd from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at Windwood Presbyterian Church. It is located at 10555 Spring Cypress, just east of Highway 249.

For this gathering we are focusing on Warm Up America!, making 7” x 9” blanket sections made in worsted acrylic yarn. The charity expressed the need for blankets, and they have joiners who will put together the knitted and crocheted sections we provide.

There are links to some patterns for the blanket sections listed on the guild website as well as the charity site below. As long as the sections are the appropriate size and made with same type of yarn, some variation in the patterns is allowed.

We thought it would be nice to have everyone bring a snack to share. Finger foods are the best as you can snack and knit at the same time. It’s always fun when you add food to an event!

Please bring any completed blanket sections with you to the upcoming event so we can get these to Warm Up America!

For those interested, you can reach out to Julie Weaver before October 22nd for access to the yarn stash charity currently has stored as her home. Please feel free to text her at 847-624-8432.
