Hats for Charity

Knit Love into it

One of our own knitters has offered her time and knitting talent to a great cause, knitting 100 hats for the UM Sylvester Cancer Center.  As part of her graduation service hours, she has committed to raise money for yarn and to recruit knitters or crocheters to help knit the hats.  These have been promised to be delivered by March 25th, 2011.

PLEASE HELP WITH THIS WONDERFUL CAUSE.
The Knitting Garden has patterns or yarn available for these hats.  Come sit and knit for a good cause!
