1  UNITED STATES / Connecticut / Knit & Crochet for the Cure on: January 24, 2008 11:30:42 AM
Knit For The Cure

Attention all knitters and crocheters, help fight breast cancer one stitch at at time! Here is your opportunity to help in the fight against breast cancer while doing what you love to do:

Donate hand-crafted items for the Pink Boutique, part of the Shop for the Cure on Race Day, June 7, 2008. Hats, scarves, mittens, shawls, felted bags, baby items, cell phone or iPod covers, or similar items. Creative use of pink is encouraged but any color items are welcome. 100% of the money raised through the sale of these items goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Connecticut Affiliate.

Donate comfort items for the oncology units of area hospitals. Chemo hats (winter and summer weights for men and women), lightweight shawls, lap robes or small throws, scarves and mittens (some types of chemo make people sensitive to the cold). These items are for anyone undergoing cancer treatment. The use of pink is encouraged but all colors are welcome.

Participate in Knit in the Park on Race Day, June 7, 2008. Participants will register for a special category of the race. There will be door prizes and an open area where everyone can come and spend the day knitting in the fresh air. More details will be available when registration opens in the Spring. Plan now! Form a team to join everyone in the park on Race Day!

Donated items will collected throughout the year at these locations:

We appreciate the support of these participating retailers.

PS. From Yarn Harlot's blog, http://www.yarnharlot.ca/blog/
I'm positive they will just let you in if you come, but since the very nice lady behind the counter told Amy that only 30 people had signed up (probably because we didn't know we should register) and she "didn't expect it to be busy", if you're planning on coming, could you give them a heads up so we don't have the chair thing again?
