Indulge your creative side at In The Loop, a monthly knitting and crochet gathering that gives back to others. Sessions are guided by fiber arts virtuoso Ina Braun, who helps beginners (with basic skills) and experts alike work yarn magic. Completed pieces are collected and donated to New York City-based charities. Bring hooks or needles, yarn and patterns are provided.

 

In March, participants will each make a knit or crochet “baktus” – a triangle-shaped scarf. This light layer is perfect for spring. The completed items will be donated to the Amethyst Women’s Project, a non-profit organization whose mission is “to restore dignity and hope to the lives of women adversely impacted by substance abuse, HIV/AIDS, and domestic violence and to protect and preserve family systems in Brooklyn.” Learn more about the organization’s work at http://www.awp-ci.org/.
