Aid to Oklahoma

Darlings, you know how I love to crochet for a good cause!! Our friends at Windy Knitty Yarn Shop in Andersonville are working on a great project right now! They're collecting 8" squares, either knitted or crocheted in washable yarn, to sew together into blankets for the tornado relief effort in Oklahoma. Would you love to help but you're short of cash and can't afford to buy yarn for this project? That's okay -- they have a giant bin of washable yarn that people have donated for others to stitch up! If you sweet talk our good friend Rico Blanco at Squiggly's, he might be willing to let you use some scrap yarn too.

The good folks at Windy Knitty are also having Sewing Parties where people can volunteer to sew those squares together. Those events are Sunday, June 9, from noon til 5 and Thursday, June 13, from 6-9. There will be snacks. Please feel free to bring goodies to share.

If you have 8" squares you'd like to donate and can't get them to Windy Knitty, you can bring them to me or leave them with Rico at Squiggly's.

Tonight at 7 is my Stitch 'n' Bitch at the Glenwood, where I will have scrap yarn and will be encouraging everyone to stitch up a square. Until next time, my darlings, Peace, (radical) Love, and Yarn!!
