Earlier this year my knitting club threw an event at my college for parents weekend! We invited students and their parents to come and knit 8x8 squares to send to Knit-A-Square, an organization that sews the squares into blankets. The blankets primarily go to AIDs orphans in South Africa. Here are some pictures from the event!
This is a great event to throw if you are in a knitting club! The 8x8 squares are simple enough for knitters of all skill level, and since it is for a good cause there is sure to be a good turnout!
