KNIT-A-LONG with Project Knitwell

Join us for Project Knitwell’s first ever KNIT-A-LONG  (KAL)! Join the Sock Knitting Wave!
Starting July 26 and continuing through Labor Day we’ll be knitting “Matt’s Socks” to raise awareness of knitting as a way to cope with stressful situations and to promote wellness. Summer is a perfect time for sock knitting – especially if the pattern is a lovely, soothing “wave” motif in a gorgeous blue yarn!

Project Knitwell at Vogue Knitting Live

Project Knitwell is co-sponsoring a panel at Vogue Knitting Live on Saturday, January 14, 2017.  “The Wellness Connection,” co-sponsored with The Craft Yarn Council and Lasch Media, will take place from 2-3pm in the Manhattan Ballroom on the 8th Floor of the Marriott Marquis. 

The panel will focus on the growing body of research being conducted on the therapeutic benefits of knitting and crochet.  We are looking for people to join in a dialogue about the research and learn more about how others are using yarn crafting as a therapeutic tool.  The objective is to make knitting and crochet an accepted and regular part of health and wellness, just as exercise and yoga are.

We hope to see you at Vogue Knitting Live again this year!
