Meet-up on 4/18

OK ladies, being Good Friday many of us will not meet-up this week.

However, we’re a large group and a few of the ladies are happy to come out. So, if you’re available, stop by Panera on Friday, 1 p.m. If not, will see you next week.
Happy Passover & Happy Easter

Yarn & Blankies

Over time the Ladies of S&B have given me yarn and knitted items for the babies. You may wonder where they go. This last weekend in the local paper there was a letter from a woman in Bedford prison saying how much crocheting has changed her life. Some the yarn goes to Bedford.

There was another feature about child birth and a new Mother expressed how delighted she was to receive a hand knitted blanket for her daughter in the NICU at Westchester Medical Center. Your baby items go to that NICU.

All that you have donated has gone where it is truly appreciated.

Thank You, Susan

“Warming the Hearts of Veterans”

Our 2014 Valentine’s Day project ladies!! Knitting & Crocheting Lap-ghan/Lap-robes for the Veterans at the Montrose VA Nursing Home.

While the idea of this project has simmered for a few weeks we’ve nailed down the details yesterday at the Stitch & Bitch – and everyone is anxious to get busy.
Thanks to Kathy for the wonderful idea to benefit the VA Nursing home in Montrose, and Susan came up with the cool name for our project. Lorraine’s evening knit group will be working on items too!

Panera has once again offered to help sponsor this project so we will have extra skeins of yarn to work with! Thank you Amy!! Some yarn will be available for you on Friday, 12/27. UPDATE: Yes, there are a number of ladies who will be available for a meet-up on Friday, 12/27 – same time and place – Panera.

For the Lap-ghans:

Use ANY worsted yarn – ANY pattern. NO WOOL. The finished project should measure 27″ Width x 44″ Length

See below as a guide (or use whatever works for you).

Knitting: Use #10 needles, cast on 88

Crocheting: Thanks for the suggested patterns but when I tried it the chain too lomg. I will try it myself using a K hook and add the details once I know it works.

Merry Christmas to all!

Irene made this gorgeous neck warmer and found the perfect model!
