(Michelle & Gina buried in scarves!)
On October 1st we announced we would be knitting and crocheting in the window of the Lion Brand Yarn Studio , to make scarves for Charity. In addition, we would be collecting donations of hats and scarves from our area customers to be donated to our local charity, Partnership for the Homeless . Many New York area yarncrafters participated, in addition, the blog sparked the interest of yarncrafters around the country to reach out to their own local charities through our Charity Connection .
Our studio staff took turns knitting and crocheting in the window for 300 hours! Our goal was to hit 75 scarves. We blogged about our progress (Studio Staff in the Window , Donations So Far ), we posted our scarf patterns on Lion Brand Blog (click here for all the scarf posts).
Our final count . . . 90 scarves !!!!!

Thanks to all who participated. Your kindness will be keeping a lot of people warm this winter.
