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!
It’s awesome to see the amazing work done by Kathy Ferri, Susan Katz and the volunteers at the Hudson Valley Pet Food Pantry. Not only do that have pet food drives but our Kathy is always willing to accept donations and carry bags of pet food members of our Stitch & Bitch bring in.

We lucked out, we had cool and sunny weather – perfect for being outdoors. A huge thank you to our drivers, Joan and Karna! We enjoyed the scenic route that Joan mapped out for us; driving along the country roads we saw sheep and cow grazing…so beautiful! The foliage was amazing, bright gold and reds – just gorgeous!
The festival was larger than I imagined and it was bustling! The fairgrounds have beautiful mature trees that are bursting with Gold leaves. There was a lot of seating area which was nice, there were also large picnic tables near the food area. The fiber was plentiful, stunning color, bags of fleece, handmade baskets, accessories in row after row of pavilions. The food was standard festival goods but then we spotted “Aba’s Falafels” – certainly didn’t mind the long line!
My favorite part was with the animals. We got up-close with Sheep, Lamas, Alpacas – just amazing!!! A few of us were in the middle of the ‘parade’ of Lamas & Alpaca’s. We saw Sheep shearing which was cool. We meet the 8 mo. old black one named Shadow, it was his first showing. I also saw a few bunnies and a beautiful large Angora bunny.
The pics you see of a gathering of people on a hill blanketed in gold leaves happens to be Raverly members who gather for a one huge photo-op. Me and Ann managed to get close enough to the front for the pic too.
Well, by 4 p.m. I was pooped!! I understand why so many attend both days…perhaps next year!!
