Yarn for a Cause

On Saturday, November 14th, Knitty City will be holding a fundraising event to benefit Room to Read.  A certain GYI! blogger is one of the three organizers, and would really love to see some Gosh Yarn It! support!  A portion of the profits from every sale made next Saturday will go to Room to Read.  There will also be raffle tickets for sale for baskets of yarn from Berroco, Malabrigo, and Julie Asselin, so even if you don’t buy any yarn, you can still help out the cause.

Pictured above: yarn lovers flocking to Knitty City to expand their stashes.

Stop by Knitty City, on 79th between Broadway and Amsterdam, any time between 11 AM and 6 PM on Saturday, November 14th to show your support for Room to Read, an excellent cause you can read more about below:
“Room to Read focuses on two areas where we believe we can have the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education.  We work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond.”

See you all then!
