Charity Knitting: Knots of Love
Every October we pick a charity.
This year we will be knitting Chemo Caps for Knots of Love.
Knots of Love is a local SoCal charity started in 2007 whose mission it is to donate hand knitted/crocheted chemo caps, premie hats, blankets, and more to people going through difficult times.
They have a specific list of yarns that can be used. In store we carry Cherub Aran and we will reintroduce Sirdar Snuggly in October. We will offer special pricing on both yarns for the month of October for charity knitting.

We chose Knots of Love not only because we love them and their mission but because we let one of our customers down. Alicia lovingly created hats and a blanket for Knots of Love and we failed to send the donation in. It was donated to another charity. We are so very sorry for the mistake and realize that there is no way to fix the situation but we could honor her efforts by buidling on them.
Please join us throughout the month! We will have more details on the website.
Socktober is two things. First, it is a focus on learning how to knit socks and second, it is a charity drive for socks for the homeless. Throughout the month of October you will find tons of classes and KALs on socks and we will do a sock drive for local shelters.
