Nittany Knits

Monday, October 09, 2006

Getting door prizes for your knitting is just a bit like Christmas, wouldn't you say? I have already been contacted by one gal who cannot attend the Knit-A-Thon and wanted to drop off scarves. I now have 6 scarves to start the items being donated and she is already entered into the raffle. If you cannot be at the Lakeside on Saturday, just come on down Thursday night between 6 and 8 to drop off your items and be entered. Also you will get to meet some of the gang from the weekly sit 'n knit.

Three local yarn shops have shown their support by donating door prizes to us. The first store to respond was the Celtic Knot yarn shop (with their new location in the Normany Shopping Center) who donated a bag of yarn and a needle case. Next up, Cloverhill yarn shop (located in Catonsville, with quilting, and needlepoint store right next to them!) donated two $15 gift certificates, and finally All About Yarn (celebrating their second anniversary) donated a scarf kit. Please show your support to all of these stores!!!!!!!!!!!!! Without them, we would be driving alot farther to get to good yarn.

Also, I want to note that this event would not be happening without the kind and continued support of Mr. Mike from the Lakeside Cafe. We love the location for sitting and knitting at anytime. If you haven't checked out the warm atmosphere and comfy chairs and great view, you are missing out! My kids also suggest you try the peanut butter cup smoothie, but my favorite is the chicken salad sandwich! Without the Lakeside cafe, we would have been doing this event on some benches without a tent in case of rain. Could have been very soggy. However, we know it will be a great day weather wise because we have an indoor location. The great part about the Lakeside Cafe is outside seating is also available for you! Check it out.

Happy Knitting!
