August 26 is Dog Appreciation Day!

July 26, 2019

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.”*

Knit Your Bit

November 11, 2017

Let's show our Veterans that we appreciate their service to our country!

Knit Your Bit

Knit Your Bit was launched in 2006 by The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. Since then, Knit Your Bit has distributed over 50,000 scarves to veteran's centers, hospitals and service organizations across the country. 

The scarves can be knit or crochet.  There are knit and crochet patterns available on the Knit Your Bit website but you can also use any pattern of your choice. Machine washable yarn in gender neutral or patriotic colors are recommended.   

We're a community partner with Knit Your Bit so you can drop off scarves at the shop. We'll include a tag with your name. We plan on shipping out scarves on December 18 and again on February 28, 2018.

Handmade Scarves - Thank You!

November 07, 2017

Thank you all so much for your donation of comfort scarves to support Handmade Especially for You!  

The scarves were shipped off yesterday to Handmade Especially for You. Volunteers will tie each scarf with a ribbon and distribute the scarves to shelters for abused women throughout California in time for their holiday parties. Often this is the first gift ever received by the recipient so your generosity really matters. 

Thank you again!  

Side note: Handmade Especially for You just reached a milestone of 100,000 scarves since 2008. Congratulations Leslye!
