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 :-)

Trish... It really is beautiful. I'm definitely going to bid on it! You should be very proud! What will be your next charity knit?

Wow! I can't believe how beautiful it turned out! I know that my little square didn't look that impressive when I turned it in. Amazing work team... I'm sure it will fetch a pretty penny!

Even though I've moved far, far away.. please let me know if you are having another charity event.. I would love to help!
