May is a special month because it's the month you start thinking about your summer projects. If you are a quick knitter you can get a summer top or poncho done for this year. You can also start your project for fall, or you can do some donation knitting.
Donation knitting of course can and should be done all year but it's especially nice to start when you are on vacation because then you always have a project that you know someone will appreciate and it keeps your hands busy. In June we start collecting for the Veterans, Brookline Smiles group. We collect all year for Dana Farber and the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless. These are just a few of the places we donate to.
Some people like to start Christmas presents in the summer, especially Christmas stockings. Then there are always socks to be knit.
So May is one of my favorite months because it's exciting and fun for us at the store to help people pick out their summer projects. Stop by anytime, be sure to use your 15% off coupon or go to our calendar and choose to shop on a special day and get 20% off that special yarn you've had your heart set on.
