Philadelphia Knit Out this Sunday -- and expanded hours on Sunday here

The Philadelphia Knit Out (Crochet too) is tomorrow, Sunday Sept. 10th, from noon to five, at the Convention Center. You'll find beginning knitting and crochet lessons, a fashion show, lessons in a variety of knit and crochet techniques, door prizes and you can donate handmade items to two charities: the District Attorney's Urban Genesis program is looking for small stuffed animals and blankies to give to small children who are in chaotic circumstances (like witnessing a domestic dispute); and City Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown’s Warmth In Winter Holiday Drive is looking for handmade hats, mittens and scarves to distribute to homeless children this winter. Even better: the event is free.

Just in case you discover a burning need to purchase yarn afterward, Rosie's will stay open an extra hour on Sunday (until 6) to give you one more chance to pick up yarn, needles, whatever.
