Charity Knitting

Knitting something for another person is always special, but when you are knitting something that will benefit the community it becomes exceptional.  For the third time, friends of Patricia's Yarns worked together to make a beautiful blanket.  The project kicked off at Grimaldi's Pizza (Second and Clinton Streets) with a fun night of knitting and pizza.  Each person knit one square. 

The blocks were returned, blocked, and sewn together. The finished result is a gorgeous and soft blanket made with love.   The blanket is made from 20 skeins of Manos Maxima and the Four Seasons Throw pattern by Judith Shanghold (please note, permission was given from Judith to make the blanket).

You can buy tickets to win the blanket at Patricia's Yarns ($5 each or 5 for $20).  All proceeds benefit the Hoboken Homeless Shelter.  Manos Maxima and the Four Seasons Throw pattern are also available at the shop.  

Happy Knitting!
