Yarn Swaps, Maryhurst, and Derby Hats

Last Thursday, we hosted our first yarn swap at the Knit Nook, proving that one person's stash is another's treasure. We had a great turn out. Paulette even made some delicious homemade Derby pie!

And at the end of the night, we collected all of this yarn for the girls at Maryhurst. If you would like to donate yarn or other knitting and crochet supplies, please bring them to the Knit Nook. We go every Wednesday, so if you're interested in volunteering, let us know!

In other news, Miriam finished her hat! Just in time to lend it out for Derby!

It's crocheted out of wire and thread. Miriam actually learned how to crochet so she could make this hat, and she did! It was hard going, but third time's the charm!
