That’s the way the women at the Peitz House cancer support center feel about a different kind of support group. While a group of about 20 women sit together knitting and crocheting, they relax with the uplifting and kind words of others who share stories and laugh. At the same time they are making shawls, lap robes, hats, scarves, buntings and angels for the local craft fair.
“You can come here feeling so down,”one woman said, “and it’s a real pick-me-up.”

Sunday December 7th was our very first Charity Knitting/Crochet day at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. We had a great turn out and everyone had a ball.
If you live in the New York area and would like to visit the Studio (34 W. 15th Street New York, NY), it’s not too late to participate. You can still come by and pick up a folder with information and patterns. You get 10% off on all the yarn you buy in the Studio for the charity hats and when you turn the hats in you will receive a 20% off coupon for your next purchase in the Studio as our thank you.
Here’s a few pictures of the fun:
Here’s just one afternoon’s worth of knitting & crochet!!!
