Come to a night of knitting and community to benefit BlinkNow's Women's Center.

FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 2017 6PM-10PM

KnitNow 2017 is an opportunity to spend an evening with local knitters of all levels, while making a difference for our friends in Nepal. The Women's Center runs programs that empower women through education and vocational training. This Knitathon will raise money to sponsor the training of women and contribute to the educational costs of hiring teachers.

At the Knitathon, you will receive a knitting pattern and instructions for a custom designed cowl. Throughout the evening, Karen Bailey, cowl designer, will review the different stitches used to make this symbolic cowl that represents your support for BinkNow. This cowl pattern has been aptly named

One Earth, One Sky, One Heart 

  • Bring a boxed dinner, a folding chair, and friends.
  • Pick up supplies at Rows of PurL 908-879-0403, for the knitathon by Feb. 25th for the best selection.
  • Or bring your own supplies: cowl uses DK or Worsted weight yarn and circular 16" or 24" needles, size 6 or 7 for the dk weight option. Size 8 or 9 if you're knitting the simplified worsted weight cowl.
  • Assistance will be available for people who would like to learn the basics of knitting.

Thanks to Jenny Monteleone for generously hosting the fundraiser at her new knitting shop Rows of PurL in Chester, NJ.
