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 items at any of the locations listed on the right of the screen.  And if you feel the need to be a bit more social, Streetknit’s Teresa Young has started the first Streetknit SnB in the Annex area.  Check out the details below.  Happy knitting!

Hello Knit-tasticas!

The snow is on the ground. The weather outside is frightening. Handmade knits so inviting.

This is a reminder that, yes, Streetknit is still here and going strong. And it’s time to start pouring in those projects to our drop-off points. The shelters need them.



In super news: Teresa Young, our super-powered, oft-times knit instructor/facilitator/

emissary/go-to woman, is convening the first-ever weekly Streetknit SnB in the Annex. Starting this Sunday, Nov. 23rd.

Every Sunday, 1 pm – 3pm
The Pump
410 Bloor Street West Toronto (North side, near Bloor and Brunswick)

Needles and yarn available aplenty
Crocheters and knitters alike welcome
Novice instruction for beginners (both knit and crochet)
Social knitting for beginners and experts alike
Knit for Streetknit, all knit goods going directly to help keep Toronto’s homeless warm this winter
Have a coffee or some finger food (alas, we can not pay for it)
