Good times for a good cause happening at SMP Craft!
Two weeks ago, we sent an email to our fellow Macmillan employees with a November challenge: Crochet/knit a hat or scarf by December 1st to donate to two local women’s shelters: Women in Need, Inc. and The Salvation Army’s Women’s Residence. The response to our first Crafternoon call to action was off the charts!
Lyon Brand Yarn donated a load of supplies — skeins of yarn, knitting needles, and crochet hooks.
St. Martin’s Press Production Manager, Adriana Coada, and seasoned knitter and teacher, Felecia O’Connell, lead us through basic crochet and knit techniques using patterns from Erika Knight’s two absolutely essential books if you’re a knitter or crocheter, Simple Knitting and Simple Crocheting.

- Scarf Pattern (the dishcloth pattern makes a scarf by simply adding extra rows)
Stay tuned. We’ll be doing regular updates on our progress!
