Snuggle Up!

Calling all needle artists! Beginning in July on a Sunday afternoon, Hands On Bay Area will start a new project in conjunction with The Snuggles Project. Join us to make small blankets and bring comfort to animals who live at the Peninsula Humane Association/SPCA. Please bring supplies including machine washable yarn. For more information on how to participate, visit here.

If you're not currently a member of Hands On Bay Area (it's free!), drop me an email; the address can be found on my knit blog. This project is good for folks who want to learn more about volunteering in their communities.

Knitters Needed for Cultural Swapping

Sent to Bay Area Knitters Email... posted by moderator

Hi Everyone at Bay Area Knitters,
I've been reading your knitting group blog and I hope you might be interested in a new blog we’ve created called "Gimme Your Stuff". It’s about cultural exchange, where people can use blogs to swap culturally significant items from their area.

I'm trying to get some knitters involved because there are so many of you around the world, and there's so many different wools and patterns from different countries to swap! It’s only a new blog and we’re trying to get it some publicity. I hope you like it, we’d really appreciate it if you'd write a short note about us on your blog so heaps of people can get involved!

You can check it out here:

Thanks for your time, have a great day :)
Australian Ambassador for Gimme Your Stuff.
