Yarn, Stitches, and Pepperoni

What goes with Grimaldi's classic pizza? Why knitting bears of course!! In the first of many charity knit nights Patricia's Yarns and Grimaldi's teamed up to knit bears for the Mother Bear Project. This non-profit organization sends these bears to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations like South Africa, Zambia, Ethiopia.

Sixteen knitters participated in the event. The bears were made out of Cascade Superwash wool and it's softness will be perfect for the hugs they will be receiving.

More charity knit nights are being scheduled.
