Nittany Knits

Saturday, October 14, 2006

What a great time we had today!!!!!!! Lots of knitters took over the Lakeside Cafe for 5 hours and got to know each other while knitting items for charity. 21 door prizes were given out, and here's the list of who won what:

* Great Harvest Bread Co. bread basket- Heather Jefferson
*Dinner for two at Chevys went to four different people-Miss Bonnie, Jean Chadderton, Coleen Foley, and Miss Rebecca
*$25 Gift Certificate to Let's Dish-Cathy Frantz
*$20 Gift Certificate to Le Gourmet Chef- Margaret Lagera
*Two people won $15 Gift Certificates to Cloverhill Yarn Shop-Jeanette Sphon and Jill Levin
*A Fiber Fest scarf kit from All About Yarn- Jolene Mosley
* Bag of Lakeside Cafe Hazelnut 1Lb coffee-Debbie Allison. 1lb bag of French Roast coffee-Carole Hanson
*A lambskin journal donated by Miss Bonnie- Terri Schod
*Elizabeth Austin needle case from the Celtic Knot Yarn Shop-Miss Sheila (By the way HAPPY BIRTHDAY , and thank you for spending it with us!!!!!!!!)
*Five people won bags of Plymouth Yarn Dreambaby D.K. with two balls per bag from Celtic Knot Yarn Shop-Alice Kolasny, Kathy Schneider, Kathy Yetz, Cyndi Jacobson, and Kathleen Hart.
*Miss Sheila provided two knitters with her stitch markers (which are sold at All About Yarn)- Beth Singer, and Christine Yale.

Tons of items were collected for charity. If you are wondering if you can still donate items, the answer is YES. Items will be collected every Thursday night at the Lakeside Cafe from 6-8 (except Thur. Nov 2nd- we will be at Stitches East).

If you are wondering what happens to the NittanyKnits blog now that the Knit-A-Thon is over, do not despair. You will still be able to find out about many different charities to knit for, and keep updated on the progress of next year's knitting event, and perhaps a couple events in between.

Thanks to all of those who helped out and/or donated door prizes!! Special thanks goes out to Large Marge for everything, Javajem for the blog, and Mr. Mike for hosting our event.

Happy Knitting to all, and to all a good night!
