We've been given the approval from the Philadelphia Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation for fighting breast cancer to officially use their name to donate to their cause. We hope you will join us this week to start knitting a scarf for Breast Cancer patients and survivors.
This week's assignment:
Purchase yarn of your choice. We encourage you to choose something luxurious, pure wool, cotton, or a silk blend - something you would like to wear yourself. (Acrylic - not so much - these ladies are sick - let's spoil them!)
During the next week we will post how to start - how many stitches to cast on etc. Therefore - please join our followers section! That way you will know the instant we post.
We encourage you to patronize your local yarn stores for recommendations:
