Knitting for a cause at Steenbock Library

The squares pile up for Warm Up America.

It’s a given that our campus libraries provide access to lots and lots of digital and print information. This fall, the kind staff at Steenbock Library are offering access to hands-on learning, too! Every Friday until December 14, students and staff are invited to the library to participate in a lunchtime knitting extravaganza.

The events are being held in support of Warm Up America, a non-profit organization that provides blankets for people in need, while at the same time promoting education about knitting and other fiber arts.

Knitters (and crochet-ers!) come together to create individual squares that will be joined together to make a full blanket. Don’t know how to knit or crochet? No problem – library staff are on hand to show you how to wield the needles. Supplies are donated by area businesses and individuals.

Get your knit on at Steenbock Library, every Friday at lunchtime.

The first Fridays of the series were well attended by students and staff from all over campus – see more photos from the event on Flickr.
