We're measuring warmth in squares!
Join us on Wednesdays from 4 - 5 p.m. in the Conference Room for Warm Up America!* Knitting Project! Bring your needles and some yarn, and knit a square (patterns supplied). Squares will be joined together to create warm blankets for people around the world.
It takes 20 squares to make a baby blanket.
It takes 36 squares to make a child's blanket.
It takes 49 squares to make an adult blanket.
Let's get busy!
Warm Up America! (WUA!) is a charity that has warmed peoples' lives since 1991. It started in a small Wisconsin town with neighbors knitting and crocheting afghans for neighbors in need. Thanks to the creativity of founder Evie Rosen who came up with the idea of having volunteers knit or crochet small sections and then others join them together, the idea quickly caught on. Today, Warm Up America! distributes warm afghans, caps and other items to tens of thousands of people, thanks to the generosity of knitters and crocheters around the country.
