LOCAL YARN SHOP DAY - Saturday, April 30th, 2022
Hope to see you on Saturday for Local Yarn Shop day!
Did you know Anne Frank was a knitter? Saw this photo on the wall when I went to the Anne Frank museum and came up with a way for us all to honor her. On September 21st Anne wrote in her diary "Starting a white wool sweater." So every year, on September 21st, we are going to cast on white wool sweaters. Most of us are going to do baby sweaters and donate them in Anne's honor to Pregnancy Help Clinic in Brighton. But you can knit a sweater for yourself or anyone you like. Wonder how many white wool sweaters we can cast on this year? Would love to have you stop by the shop to cast on. This year the 21st is on a Wednesday...so I will be in from 10-6, to snap a picture of you casting on. If you can't make it in to cast on, maybe someone could take your picture and you could text/email it to me? I have some really nice DK weight white wool in. Please join us for this annual event! Thank you so much for your consideration, I really appreciate it! #stitchintimehonorsannefrank
