UW Center for Volunteer Service to Host Knit-In
February 9, 2009 — The University of Wyoming Center for Volunteer Service will host its first knit-in, an evening dedicated to making wearable crafts for children in need, Monday, Feb. 16, from 5-9 p.m. in the Wyoming Union Family Room.
Participants will knit, crochet and hand-stitch hats, scarves and gloves to donate to the Linford School in West Laramie. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Snacks, coffee and tea will be provided.
This event is BYOY (Bring Your Own Yarn). Participants are also asked to bring donations of pre-fabricated children's winter wear.
Everyone, regardless of ability, is encouraged to attend. Instruction, sample patterns, limited practice yarn, needles and hooks will be provided for beginners.
"Not everyone will finish a project at this event and that's fine," says Katie Kleinhesselink, program coordinator for the UW Center for Volunteer Service. "A knit-in is just as much about creating community as it is creating products."
For more information, call Kleinhesselink at (307) 766-6871 or e-mail her at email@example.com.
