Thank yous all around
This past Veterans Day weekend we hosted a Knit-in at the Museum. We hold these monthly, and for years, it has been the highlight of my week sitting with knitters and crocheters as we share Knit Your Bit with weekend Museum visitors. Although we’ve sent out thousands of scarves to veteran organizations both locally and around the country, one thing we hadn’t done was put them directly into the hands of veterans visiting the Museum. I’m so glad we did. The veterans and their families were so pleased with their scarves that they kept telling us thank you, when really we were thanking them for their service. Here are a few pictures captured Saturday afternoon:
The next Knit-in at the Museum is scheduled for Saturday, December 17th from noon-four. Any knitter or crocheter who can make it to the Museum that day is welcome to join us. We plan to hand out more scarves to veterans to again say thanks and happy holidays!

How wonderful to be able to hand the scarves out directly to a vet. Thanks for sharing those happy smiles with us.
