My Sister Knits’ Make a Hat Day!

My Sister Knits’ Make a Hat Day is Saturday, December 15th from 11 – 4!  Join us for fun, frivolity, and some rare knitting time with no interruptions!

We will provide soup, hot apple cider, and other yummy goodies including chocolate as an afternoon pick-me-up.  We will also toast our progress with a glass of bubbly at the end of the day!

If you’re new to hat knitting, Jenny will be there to guide you through the process.  The only requirements are knowing how to knit and purl.  If you’d like to try a new technique on your hat, she will guide you through that also.  She’ll gladly be your ‘safety net’ for your hat project on that day!

We have oodles of ideas and hats on display for your consideration.  We have ones that can be knit quickly and ones that require a bit more work.  What are you in the mood for?

You are welcome to come to My Sister Knits that morning ready with your yarn and pattern.  Alternatively, you may come that morning, choose your pattern and your yarn, and then get started!

An RSVP is appreciated

It would help us plan for you if you could RSVP by Dec. 8th letting us know you’re coming or even thinking about coming.  However, if you decide to join us at the last minute, please do so!

My Sister Knits’ Annual Clothing Drive

My Sister Knits’ Make a Hat Day would be a great time to bring in a donation for our annual clothing drive for Putnam and Irish elementary schools.  They are in dire need of sweat pants for the younger grades, socks, and girls’ leggings in sizes 4 – 6.  These kiddos really have need of our generosity.

Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.” —The Dalai Lama XIV

We hope to see you on Saturday, December 15th!

    I will attend. Thank you so much for planning this. Just a thought… I once read where families in need don’t buy undies for their kids because it’s not a visible clothing item. This inhibits kids from using the bathroom or participating in gym where not having underwear might be observed by a peer. Something I had not thought about before.
