Nittany Knits

Monday, October 30, 2006

For those of you waiting for the results of the Knit-A-Thon, I thank you for your patience. My paying job has not been cooperating, and my knitting has actually taken a back seat for the past 2 weeks. But now, we have the results you have been waiting for!

The big winner was the Preemie Hats! 45 preemie hats were collected (I didn't count how many were Miss Sheila's!)

32 scarves were collected for the SOS Project! Keep in mind, you can keep knitting the scarves and we can keep getting them to the women undergoing breast cancer surgery at Howard County Hospital this year!

2 Children's sweaters were donated, 5 washclothes, and 5 pairs of wool socks. Numerous Chemotherapy Caps were donated, but I did not get the final count before Miss Margaret wisked them away to their destination. 20 knit hats for children and adults were collected.

You all helped to hand knit items for over 100 members of our community!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for the outpouring of support that was given to this event!

The first annual Knit-A-Thon was organized in only one months time. The second annual Knit-A-Thon is going to be a year in the making, so start knitting now! See you next year...
