Hey everyone! Winter is in the air, and finals are coming. Good thing there’s yarn around to help you de-stress! Our next Make-and-Take event is the Cabled Headband. It will take place on December 5 from 9-11 pm, which is our final meeting of the semester. This is a technique that has both knitting and crochet versions. Tickets are $10 and include yarn and either a hook or a pair of knitting needles necessary to do the project. We’ll be selling tickets at meetings and at the Stitch-n-Bitch on Wednesday.
We’ve also received new materials to make more donation items for Living Ministries. Check out the new colors at our next meeting!
We also have another Member Spotlight! Introducing Gabrielle Schantz!
Hi, I’m Gabrielle, and I am a senior here at Pitt, majoring in Chemical Engineering. I enjoy knitting because it’s therapeutic, and takes your mind off things. It’s a great stress reliever. My grandmother taught me how to knit before, but I retaught myself and have been knitting for about 2 years now. I’m currently working on making leg warmers as Christmas presents.
Want to be featured in our next Member Spotlight? Send us a picture of you and what you’re currently working on, along with a short blurb about yourself and your current project to firstname.lastname@example.org, or let us know at one of our meetings. Until next time!
Hugs and Stitches,
