Calling All Knitters

We're really excited to have an opportunity to work with Little Joe's Books on a really fun and slightly goofy event.  We've always thought that the perfect vacation is one that includes the opportunity to read and knit and now here's an opportunity to celebrate a book by knitting.  

Little Joe’s Books needs to completely decorate their store in original ways with knit items and yarn.  The contest celebrates the new children’s book The Extra Yarn, by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen.  This book is about a girl who finds an extraordinary box of yarn and begins to knit sweaters for things that do not typically wear sweaters.  

I'm thinking book jackets! Jacket Pattern. Jacket Pattern. Jacket Pattern.

Here are ways you can help.  You choose how many you would like to do.

1)     LEND Little Joe's anything you’ve knit or that you know was hand-knit by others.  You can drop them off at Little Joe’s Books or Katonah Yarn before February 25th.  They will be returned in the first week of March.  (They are hoping for hundreds of items—no item is too small!)  These items will be used to decorate Little Joe’s Books (imagine books dressed in children’s sweaters and balls of yarn hanging from the rafters.)  

2)     GIVE us your extra (left over) balls of yarn.  We will donate them to the women’s prison afterwards.

3)     COME TO A PARTY!   As our THANK YOU, Katonah Yarn and Little Joe’s Books invites all participants to a Knitting & Wine Party upstairs in Little Joe’s Books on Wednesday, February 29th from 6 – 8pm.   

If you plan to participate, please shoot us an email!  And please call with any questions.  You can drop off your knitted items at either Little Joe’s Books or Katonah Yarn.       THANKS!
