Charity Knitting on the Common  
For those who like to craft:

Don't forget! Charity Knitting on the Common - This Sunday, May 23, 2004 at 1pm at the Frog Pond. I'll be there at 1pm knitting away so just look for me and my pup Ziggy and set up your chair or spread your blanket or just sprawl in the grass. Take a load off and relax for a few hours.

Come when you want. Stay as long as you wish. Bring a picnic. Bring your kids (there's a Frog Pong PlayGround next to the Frog Pond). Enjoy the afternoon.

Don't know how to knit? Come anyway and we'll teach you.

Don't have yarn for charity knitting? We do! Let me know and I'll bring it. Just bring one pair of US size 8 knitting needles and we'll get you started.

Want to do a different craft - crochet, needlework, cross-stitch, etc. or work on personal knitting? Bring it and come!

Don't have sign up. Just show up!

---- I don't know if I will go yet. It really depends on how busy my weekend ends up being, but I figure this is good to let people know about.
Feeling like: crafty

what is being knitted and for what charity?

If I recall correctly from the discussions we've had with the woman organizing it, they are knitting for either one of the local hospitals or for any charity that you wish to donate your work to.

That said, you can either knit hats, booties, etc. for babies (often preemies), or you can knit squares which one of the organizers will sew together (knit together *shrug*) to make blankets. They have done this before with good response, but they do tend to leave the charity decisions up to the workers, because not everybody wants to donate their work and time to the same causes.

I know there was some talk of people also doing knitting for animal shelters, for example.
