An Afghan for Charity

It's amazing what knitters can do when they come together for pizza, a little wine, conversation and a mission:

We are please to present you with this year's Afghan for the Hoboken Homeless Shelter Silent Auction. This blanket was started at our Charity Knit Night at Grimaldi's Pizzeria back in July. Twenty knitters casted on their square that night and began what we hoped would be a gorgeous blanket. The squares began showing up at the shop and soon were stitched together and blocked. What we discovered as the blanket dried was that gorgeous was indeed an understatement.

This afghan was knit out of Manos del Uruguay wool classica and will be available for your bid 0n Wednesday night December 3rd at Teak during the Hoboken Homeless Shelter Annual Silent Auction.

If you cannot wait for then to see it, come by the shop to check it out for yourself :-)
