Annual Toy Drive

Positive Tomorrows Octopus_2

With June quickly approaching it’s time for our annual toy drive!  The past four summers L & B has been knitting, crocheting, and collecting through amazing donations, hand-crafted stuffed toys to send to the incoming kindergarten class at Positive Tomorrows, an elementary school for homeless children in Oklahoma City.

Positive Tomorrows Octopus_1

Each year we have had such overwhelming success that we have been able to donate enough toys to supply not only the kindergarten class, but also the first grade class.  So this year we are once again turning to the knitting and crocheting community to help us make this year another success! As always, for each hand-crafted donation, you will receive an entry into a drawing for a $25 L&B Yarn Co. gift card.

Positive Tomorrows Octopus_3

The first in our collection is this extremely cute Jellyfish crocheted by Leslie out of 2 balls of Cascade 220 Superwash Wool.  To take a look at this pattern on Pinterest just click here.  We will collect donations all summer long until Friday, August 28th the day of our drawing!  With so many adorable softies to choose from on Ravelry, you are sure to find one that a child will love.  -B

Kika Knit-A-Long

L & B will be hosting our spring knit-a-long beginning Tuesday, April 7th from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  We will be knitting Kika by Olga-Burava-Kefelian a versatile triangular shaped shawl that transforms from a garment to an accessory.  Worked with custom pattern that creates differently textured looks on each side lends this knit to be completely reversible.

You can check out the pattern by clicking here.  The name Kika translates to geometry in Japanese.  While searching for the perfect DK weight yarn for this spring knit we decided to knit our Kika out of Rowan Purelife Revive, a yarn that is made up of completely recycled fibers (silk, cotton, and viscose).

This is quite a large project so we are planning on four meeting dates over a four month time span: April 7th, May 5th, June 2nd, and July 7th, each evening is a Tuesday and we will be here at the store knitting from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  All you need to do to participate is purchase the pattern on Ravelry and buy your yarn at L & B Yarn Co.  This KAL is an awesome way to meet fellow knitters.

Spaces are limited so please sign up by calling 405-310-3636, e-mailing, or coming by the shop to visit. -B
