The Plan

Update 2017. While we hoped we could revive this project it has not happened. If anyone is interested in taking over, please leave a comment.

Knit lots of hats and scarves for patients and survivors or breast and ovarian cancers to be donated to the Komen Foundation for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate. We fully support monetary fund raising efforts for the cure. But we also want to do something which will go directly to those who need to know there are people rooting for their health and survival. All skill levels are welcome!

Please join us! The 2011 project ends Sept. 15th.

I'm ready!

I bought some really fun, pink, sparkly yarn today for our first project at Nangellini, on 823 South Street. This was my first visit to the shop/gallery - what a fun place!

As soon as I walked in, the shop owner, Nancy, said "Hi!" and walked me to her glorious stash in the back of the store. She even had beautiful "vintage" yarns donated from an estate.

The shop supports fiber artists, in addition to knitters, so there also was unspun wool in many colors for sale.

As I was checking out, I finally came clean and introduced myself as one of the Pinkknit-a-thon bloggers. She had our postcards by the cash register.

Nancy mentioned a knitting & crochet circle at the shop two nights a week: Tuesday 6-9pm and Sunday 3-6pm, admission is $5 but free with purchase. Also she offers a free spinning circle on Fridays 5-8pm.

So, a new adventure was had today and I can't wait to start knitting again!
