Knitter`s Love to Knit for Others ...


And give from their hearts!

Are you looking for a reason to knit? Or do you like to knit small fast projects for instant gratification? But those small projects are piling up and you need someone to give 'em to? How about a hat? How about hats for chemo patients? Alpaca, Wool, Cotton and even Acrylic yarns (cotton & acrylic are good for indoor hats or a person allergic to animal fiber) are appreciated. The Seed Stitch Fine Yarn store in Salem, MA is collecting thru the month of November up to December 20, 2006, hand knitted or crocheted hats for Cancer Treatment Centers. They'll be displaying them on the hat trees in their store windows until it's time to deliver them for donation.

If you can't bring one in, but would like to donate your knitted or crocheted hat(s), mail to:

Seed Stitch Fine Yarn
10 Front Street
Salem, MA 01970

And watch the trees in the store's window grow Hats ...

Hey, even stop by the store and shop for a knitter this holiday! Or put in your wish list at the store for the person(s) shopping for YOU! I'm going right for the "gold" and asking for a gift certificate. Yahee.

Here's some of what Seed Stitch has to offer ...


And see that bag ... I so want that bag ... sooooo bad!







I love this place! But then I love to shop and I love to KNIT!




And the Seed Stitch is perfect for meeting new knitty people and just sitting and knitting or crocheting while taking a break from shopping . Need advise on crochet too don't ya?

Find it all here ...











It's a new store but it's becoming a community. One that I love being a part of. Can you tell?



Just one more thing ... I won't be posting again until next week. Friday I'm off from work so I'm planning to go up and see some of the grandchildren for the weekend.


Of course I'm taking my camera AND my knitting with me ... hope to get a lot done on the road but I won't be back to a computer for awhile. So until then ...


Not that I need any more sock yarn, but my Socks That Rock Club from Blue Moon came in last week and I can finally give you a peek ...





Rock on!



p.s.
I got word that Henry the Navigator made it safely to Brookline, MA to Stash Monkey's house. And after all the walking Henry had to do around Salem, I think he had the best time with Rachel. He had wine! Now why didn't I think of that? Hehe, hope you had one for me!

Hey Rhonda! Are they gonna give you a comission on sales? LOL. There are so many good charitable knitting projects going on right now which is so nice to see. I am going to see if I can knit you up a hat and send it off to you. Enjoy your grandkids...that sounds like a great time!

Rhonda said...

Thanks, Cindy. No commission ... but I'm hoping they save me a seat every week. One with my name on it maybe? LOL

I have lust in my heart. I want a bag like that dotty one! Do you know where I could see it up close on the net? I'm afraid Salem is a little out of the way... :)

Wow, what a great place this seems to be! It's such a great thing knitting hats and caps for chemo patients - I'm planning to put the caps I've already done together in a nicely decorated box and bring them to our local chemo department around XMas - it's a good feeling being able to do at least a little bit, isn't it?

Man...that store ought to GIVE you knitting stuff just for the free advertizing you are doing for them ;o)

Wish I were closer to the store...I'd go and buy stuff!

Heather said...
