Help Girl Scouts, Help Preemies

I was recently approached by Abigail, a 6th grade Girl Scout, asking if we’d like to partner with her troop to collect preemie hats. I told her that The Naked Sheep Knit Shop and it’s customers would be thrilled to help them out. Here’s a note from Abigial, explaining what they’re hoping to accomplish:

"We are members of Girl Scout troop 1640. We are in 6th grade and working on earning our bronze award. We are making preemie sized hats to send to Medical Teams International; but seeing as there are only a few of us, that would mean a lot of knitting and/or crocheting. That's why we're asking for your help. We appreciate any donations of knitted or crocheted hats. We will collect the hats monthly. The last pick-up will be April 4, 2010."

Let's help Abigail and her troop collect a record number of hats! Drop off the hats at The Naked Sheep, and we will make sure they get to Girl Scout Troup 1640. Here are a couple websites where you can find free preemie hat patterns.

Portland Yarn Crawl

In case you haven't heard, there is going to be a Portland Yarn Crawl the first weekend in March. We're very excited about it! The Naked Sheep Knit Shop will be participating in the festivities, along with just about every other shop in the greater Portland area. There will be prizes, a scavenger hunt and much more...more details to follow about the Yarn Crawl.

And congratulations are in order to our very own VP of Everything, Brad Clark; who designed the lovely logo that will be used on the Portland Yarn Crawl website (which will be live soon!). Good job, Brad! Way to capture the spirit of Portland!

Inventory at The Naked Sheep Knit Shop was a success! We had 9 lovely counters and 1! The counting was finished in a record 5 hours, and we all enjoyed a delicious breakfast/lunch at Beaterville across the street.

Thanks to my wonderful counters...I couldn't have done it without you!
