It's Blanket Time! A Knit In - March 6, 2010 - Harborfields Library, Greenlawn, NY

Knit In Chairs, Nancy Johnson, Linda Windsor, Betty Jayne Volpe

Its Blanket Time was a success! On a sunny Saturday in March, over 80 needlers showed up to work on blanket squares. Donations of completed blankets were displayed on the stage. Many of our volunteers came with finished squares. The squares were sorted into baskets, and the whiteboard was used to keep count for the day.

Sharing patterns and techniques, the room was abuzz with chatter. The bell rang as Rick Volpe announced the completion of yet another square.

Volunteers from the Sunday@Panera chapter showed us their spinning techniques. We also had members of the Heartwarmers chapter demo how to make knitted cables and how to crochet.

All in all the event produced close to 1,000 squares and 40 completed blankets of all different colors.

Our chapters now have the job of sewing together the squares into additional blankets for children and adults. A special thank you to all who helped make this Knit In an event to remember.
