Thank you to all of you that donated Knitted Knockers in the past few weeks!

We just shipped off our biggest shipment ever!

It's not just for October. We're a collection point for Knockers so we encourage you to continue to make Knockers and drop them off any time. We make periodic shipments to our distributor throughout the year. 

Never made a Knocker but are interested? Click here for knit and crochet patterns. It's important that only approved yarns are used.  We carry Modern Cotton DK, Ultra Pima, Cleo, and Bamboo Pop

Thank you again for the donation of your time to create items that really make a difference.

August 26 is Dog Appreciation Day!

July 26, 2019

October 2019 Update:

Thank you to those of you that made snuggle blankets!

Blankets were sent directly to San Francisco Animal Care and Control.

______________________________________

Let's celebrate by making snuggle blankets to support the Snuggle Project!  

The Snuggles Project is an organization that provides Snuggles to animal shelters worldwide. 

After being given a Snuggle, a frightened or difficult to handle animal is able to become more calm which allows time for the animal and caregiver to learn how to handle the situation.  In addition, Snuggles provide a more homey environment for the animals, visitors and staff. 

Click here for knitting and crochet patterns for Snuggles. There are a variety of patterns using different stitches. There are even basket patterns for little pups and kitties. 

Want some help with the patterns? We're holding a FREE with yarn purchase workshop on Sunday, Aug 25 from 1 to 2:30pm. 

Please note PREREQUISITES:

For My Favorite Knit Snuggle: must know how to CO, K and BO

For Snug Harbor Knit Snuggle: must know CO, K, P, BO and work ITR

For Crochet Snuggle Tubbie: must know ch, sc and dc

Please bring locking stitch markers for all projects. 

If you don't need help but want to make a Snuggle, please stop on by and knit/crochet with us!

We plan on sending our first batch of cuddle blankets by September 30. 

We'll be taking donations for the Snuggles Project all year.  

Let's support homeless animals!

Knit or Crochet for St. Anthony's This Holiday Season!

November 15, 2017

Your handmade scarf or hat will be a source of comfort to those in our SF community that need it most.

St. Anthony's supports our poor and homeless neighbors in San Francisco's Tenderloin neighborhood.  Scarves and hats will be given free to guests of St. Anthony's during the holiday season. You can help by knitting or crocheting a hat or scarf and bringing it in! 

We'll be collecting hats and scarves until Dec 15.  You can use any pattern you like.  Scarves and hats for men, women and children of all ages are needed! 

Please use machine washable yarn (wool or acrylic/wool blend but no cotton please as it's not warm and holds moisture).  

Thank you all in advance for your gift of time to help our neighbors in need during this holiday season.

“You just have to be thankful for the small things in life like a warm scarf or an unexpected smile from a stranger. Those little things can turn someone’s day around.”*
