Knit-a-Thon Nears Completion!

Last weekend over 40 of us gathered together with sewing needles and yarn to sew 141 knitted squares into blankets.  It was a short two and a half weeks from first knitted square to blankets (except for Iris, who began knitting squares when she heard the words “knit-a-thon”).  You go, girl!

Many, but not all, of the squares were knit on board the Riggin this summer, with donated Hope Spinnery yarn, with the express purpose of sewing them into blankets to be given away.  And then in the world of no coincidences, viola, enter the Knit-a-Thon in support of Ashwood Waldorf SchoolAnd it’s not too late to pledge and be entered for the J. & E. Riggin Knitting Cruise trip for two raffle.  Tomorrow’s the last day!

The blankets are beautiful and will go to New Hope for Women to hopeful embrace a woman or child who is in dear need of some tenderness and warmth.  I’m so grateful to live within this terrific community.

Trying to figure out how to get all of these gorgeous, but unusual-sized, square to fit together!  Good job ladies!
