Afghans for Afghans has announced the next deadline for receiving much needed blankets, hats and vests. The charity in San Francisco must receive all finished items by February 29. In the Loop will collect the items on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22 in order to prepare for shipping on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 26.

After two working sessions there are probably 1-15 blankets in process, a few hats and several vests. Feel free to email us if you've finished an item and would like to drop it off early.

Hope to see you at the next After Work Social on Tuesday, February 12, 6-8 pm.

We're off to an amazing start--7 blankets and 2 vests were started last night at the season's first After Five Social!

Our crocheters and knitters are racing to meet the mysterious February deadline (still unannounced by afghans for Afghans).

Remember there is yarn available. If you'd like to start a project--hats, blanks or vests--before the next event, send us an email and we'll arrange to meet you with the yarn and the In the Loop pattern booklet.

For the next After Five Social, February 12, bring you tools!!! We have measuring tapes, finishing needles and a few crochet hooks, but no knitting needles.

And our official IN THE LOOP CRAFTING EXPERT, Ina Braun of Tante Sophie Fiber Studio, will be in the house for the first Brown Bag Social of the season, January 25 , to help with the patterns.
