Hats for Afghan Refugees - Social Knitting

Sat Jan 8th 1-5 p.m.

Join us on Saturday Jan 8th and knit a hat for one of the Afghan refugees that VT is welcoming to the state.

The Green Mountain Knitting Guild is spearheading an effort to collect 100 hand-knit hats (made in machine washable yarn) to donate to the organizations helping the refugees settle.

So you can knit a hat or two on your own and either drop it off here to be collected, at Yarn in Waterbury to be collected or bring it yourself to the guild's meeting on January 22nd to contribute.

Or you can make a social event out of the occasion and join us here for a gathering of customers to knit hats for an afternoon in January. I'm collecting skeins of machine washable wool or wool/blend yarns from the store shelves and I'll have some simple patterns available for all sizes, so all you have to do is bring yourself and some needles.

I will have yarns available that can be knit on US 7 - 13, so bring a 16-20" circular needle somewhere in that size range. They are collecting hats from 3 mos to adult large size, so even if you are new to knitting or are a slow knitter, you can still participate and knit a baby hat in the course of the afternoon. Those of us who knit fast can tackle some large adult!

Spread the word and grab a friend or two and come by.

I'll have coffee, tea and some delicious nibblies to enjoy by the pellet stove!
