Exercise your Craftivism!

Knit (or crochet!) for a cause when Steenbock Library hosts a 'production social', Fridays, November 2-December 14, from noon until 1:00 PM.  During these socials, we will produce 7"x9" squares to be stitched together into blankets to be donated to recipients identified by Warm-Up America.

Bring your lunch and join us in Room 240 (Steenbock Library).  All students, staff and our community of library-users are welcome. Should you not know how to knit or crochet, never fear!  We have staff available to teach you a basic stitch suitable for the project.

The library has received yarn donations, hooks and needles from local knitting retailers and staff, but additional donations are also accepted!  We are asking for worsted or bulky weight yarn suitable for a blanket.  Acrylic, cotton or wool--we can work with it all!  Any donations that are not used for the blankets will be saved and used for other library-hosted knitting events and projects.  If you would like to donate yarn or blanket squares, please contact Ariel N.  The library will be accepting donations through mid-December and blanket squares through finals week.  Donations can be dropped off at Steenbock or Chemistry Libraries. 

When: Fridays, November 2 until December 14; noon-1:00 PM.
Where:  Room 240, Conference Room (second floor, entrance level).
The room will be open from 11:30 until 1:30 should your schedule require some variation.
