Extreme Cold Weather Alert

As you probably know (if you stuck your nose outside at all today) it’s really really cold outside right now.  And today I dropped off 8 bags of handknitted items at a very grateful Scott Mission.  Tonight a whole lot of people will be a whole lot warmer because of all  your hard work.  On […]

And a very merry holiday season to all

Once again the incredible generosity of Toronto knitters has me thrilled to bits.  It’s only the beginning of winter (although by the looks of today, we’re getting the whole thing right now!) and already I’ve collected bags of donations to be passed on to those in need.  The Streetknit team wishes everyone a very happy […]

The knit goes on

Well, it has been a while since I posted anything – between getting married and moving house, things have been busy!  Winter is again encroaching though, and Streetknit will once again be collecting your hand knit items to be donated to the various shelters and groups across the city.  Drop off your new hand knit […]

Looking for Yarn

I’ve had email from a couple of community groups that are looking for yarn donations.  If you’ve got yarn you’d like to pass on to a good cause, send me an email at streetknitATgmailDOTcom and I’ll pass you their contact info. And a quick reminder that fall and winter will soon be upon us  along […]

A Community Blanket Making

If you’re headed out to the BIG on Bloor event this Saturday (and if you’re not, you really should go!), stop by the Streetknit corner, say hi to Ryan and contribute a few lines to our blanket.  If you have other donations, they will be happily taken in too.  And if you want to know […]

Yarn, yarn and more yarn

First off, thanks to everyone who has donated yarn to Streetknit.  Now please stop!  Unfortunately, I have no more space to store the yarn (my basement is full) so I’m going to have to ask everyone to please hold off on the yarn donations for a while.  We are of course still happily taking any […]

Streetknit in the Press

Way to go Maritz KnitClub!

I have been remiss in my postings the past few weeks.  On the plus side, my 10 month old daughter now has two teeth (and I am actually managing more than a few hours of sleep in a row).  On the downside, some things that really should be mentioned, haven’t been. So, first off, Streetknit […]
