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.


Here are a list of some of our favorite knitting books. Feel free to add to the list any time.  Pictures are very helpful as are links to where to purchase them. These books may or may not relate to the PinkKnit-a-thon Project - but we just really like them and they might spark an idea for you, as they have for us.

1. Reversible Knitting by Lynne Barr. Our last Pinkknit-a-thon would not have been possible without the genious of this book.
2. 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet by Lesley Stanfield This wonderful book will give you many ideas for embellishing your hats.
 3. The Ultimate Sourcebook of Knitting and Crochet Stitches, the Editors of Reader's Digest. 

4. A Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara G. Walker
5. Interweave Press The Knitter's Handy Guide to Yarn Requirements by Ann Budd
This fantastic little pamphlet gives you the yards needed for any project based on the stitch gauge. This is a must for any knitters library.
