Pine Street Inn Knit-a-Thon

My knit donation

Today was the Pine Street Inn's 3rd Annual Knit-a-Thon. The knit squares collected will be incorporated into afghans for the the Supportive Housing Program, a program which provides permanent housing for the Boston homeless. Today I brought over my blanket and squares to the other volunteers. I was awed and inspired to see how many people had made squares for this event.

This is my last plea (of the year) to join me in supporting the Pine Street Inn by making a donation.

My finished blanket (bottom row on the left) joins dozens of others as volunteers work to stitch the thousands of squares into more.

I am proud to have made a contribution to this worthy cause. Thank you all for you support. I have been assured that there will be a 4th annual knit-a-thon, so in between projects I may start assembling squares for next year!
