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.

Get together!

Hello All -
Short notice but we have the chance to get together and meet this coming Saturday at Bartram's Garden in West Philadelphia. Bartram's is hosting "Art in the Open" and on a whim there will also be Knitting in the Open. If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello - bring your knitting and knit a while.

Here are the details that Leslie Gale (the coordinator) sent me:

Saturday, June 11th, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
54th and Lindbergh Boulevard
Philadelphia, PA 19143
(215) 729-5281

Of course, there's more! There's a lot going on at the Garden that day:
In celebration of Art in the Open - a citywide art-making festival, there will be artists on site working 10 am to 2.

There will also be Printing in the Open with The Print Center noon to 3 pm - Free!
Bring a blank tee or tote to create a screen-printed design inspired by Bartram's Garden's botanic collection.

There will also be field games for kids and the Education Department will be making ice cream!

The knitting and crocheting will begin in the lawn area by the barn which faces the parking lot, but if it's as hot as it was last year, we?ll move to even more shade.

There are directions on the website,, and the Garden is very easily accessible by the 36 trolley.

Well - hope you see/meet some of you this weekend!
