Knit and Crochet for the Cure

Once again, this October, WEBS, together with our friends at the Cancer Connection of Northampton, will be hosting our 12th annual Knit and Crochet for the Cure event. On Sunday, October 4th, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m., yarn lovers can gather here at the store to knit or crochet fingerless mitts and cowls for cancer patients. I was so happy to be asked to be a part of this event, despite the fact that I have not done a great deal of charity knitting myself. My life, like so very many others, has been touched several times over by cancer, and being able to collaborate with an organization like Cancer Connection is so exciting!!

Join us for the 12th Annual Knit and Crochet for the Cure at WEBS. More details on the WEBS Blog at

Cancer Connection is a non-profit organization that provides care and support for cancer patients and their loved ones. They are fully funded by donations and all of their offerings, such as education, complementary therapies, peer support and creative programs, are free of charge. By working with Cancer Connection, the WEBS community has the opportunity to share our love of knit and crochet and offer some comfort to others who are dealing with the hardships of life with cancer.

The projects we will be knitting and crocheting this year are fingerless mitts (the ones donated last year were very popular!!) and neckwarmers (read: shorter, closer fitting cowls). The patterns are free and WEBS will be providing the yarn!!

We are so looking forward to this afternoon of charity and community and hope to see you here!! This is a free event, but registration is required, so please, sign up on our website!

I have loved yarn for as long as I can remember - likely even longer than that! I learned to knit at age 8, knit sporadically during my teens, passionately throughout my college days at Mount Holyoke, slowed down a bit in my twenties and resumed with a vengence at 30. Since then I've been spending my days surrounded by yarn (even owned my own yarn shop before joining the amazing team at WEBS in October, 2014) and can no longer imagine doing anything else. I'm looking forward to spending more time designing and learning to spin my own yarn.
