WWK (& crochet) IP Day June 11

World Wide Knit ( and Crochet) in Public Day is June 11. Just 3 weeks away. I was unable to put the flier on the blog. Anyone on my mailing list will receive a copy of the flier to print out. If you want me to send you one, contact me at
Three Rivers Crochet is hosting the event again at the Schenley Plaza, 4100 Forbes Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15260 (for your GPS). That is in Oakland, between the Carnegie and Hillman libraries. We meet under the tent in any weather (almost) between 2-5. This is our third year hosting. Spread the word.

Charity Donations

This past Saturday, May 14th, Karen, Theresa, and I participated in the Regent Square annual yard sale. We were allowed to set up in Wilkins School Community Center schoolyard. We were hoping to find people who had never encountered us before, liked what we had to offer and were glad to support our charities.
While our expectations were perhaps a little high, we were somewhat successful. We were able to send a check for $75 to the VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System and one for $90 to Rwanda Knits. Joe continues to drop afghans at the Veterans Hospital and Cari keeps us posted on the successes of the Ignezi Union. So we continue to help a little here, a little there.
