First Knit for Those in Need Meeting

It’s my own fault, really. I unknowingly scheduled the first Knit for Those in Need meeting the Saturday of St. Patrick’s Day weekend, as well as the first weekend back from spring break. I shouldn’t be surprised then, that my roommate and I sat alone at the meeting point for a half hour, quietly starting our little blanket squares and watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets playing on the Fireside Lounge tv.

This has not been the best of weeks, to say the least, and I won’t pretend I’m not disappointed. I have $300 worth of yarn and needles in my possession, and an idea that I think is really great, but doesn’t seem to be exciting too many others. Another thing going against it is that it took so long to get going that it’s already spring. Spring blossoms do not inspire people to knit heavy woolen blankets for people who won’t need to use them for almost a year. Maybe I should return the yarn I have and buy something lighter, think of a different project. There are lots of charitable knitting things that are appropriate for springtime. I don’t know. Maybe I should put the project on hold until next year.

I know only one or two people read this at most, if anyone does at all, but if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. I could really use some encouragement right now.

  1. Sorry to hear that. I too have been trying to get a group going for the past few months but has yet to go anywhere, so I know the feeling.If you're still interested in trying to get it off the ground, I highly recommend posting ads for it around the UVM campus – which I certainly wouldn't mind helping out with. Based on the size alone, I'm sure there are a lot of people who would be interested. All year I've seen students wearing knitted clothing; one of my classmates actually knits during class! 🙂

  2. Hey. I totally would have gone, but I start work at two on Saturdays 😦 It's a really awesome concept!
