Description of the KIP

Join us for a lovely day of knitting in the park! Our sponsor is Knit Picks – come check out their yarn and join the hourly free raffle for Knit Picks yarn & needles. Join our group project — knit or crochet a 6″x6″ square in Chicago Flag Colors (red, white, or light blue). We are creating a blanket for charity! Drop off your charity knitting for delivery to 500 Hats for Refugees and the Cancer Wellness Center. Learn to Knit tips from members. Big Yarn Swap/ Destash — donate your extra yarn or take some in trade. Bring a friend — all are welcome, not just Windy City Knitting Guild members.

    I plan to bring several boxes of high quality yarn, needles and tools from an older knitter who had to move and downsize. All free.

    It’s a big maybe for me as we will have just returned from Europe the previous afternoon. Going to try, jet lag permitting!
