Great job, Lucy!! Even in the midst of distracting bake sale-ing you still progressed in your knitting. :)
Here is Ginny who has been the Neighborhood Coordinator of our Monroe Street Circle for a little over 3 years! Ginny is the one who had some kids hanging out at her house after school, on a consistent basis, and she asked Jaime if Jaime thought there might be something they could do together... and LitKnit was born. Ginny and Jaime began with those kids and the first LitKnit circle took shape AND there are still original members active in it today!! THEN a little bit of time passed and Ginny introduced Jaime to her friend KATRINA (who we just did a shout out to) and Katrina began being a LitKnit Neighborhood Coordinator AND is now a LitKnit Facilitator. Ginny connects people and sticks with it. Ginny continues to be the Neighborhood Coordinator for the circle that meets in her house AND Ginny is currently serving on LitKnit's board. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ginny for your consistent, faithful, honest support and giving of your time and resources to the people of LitKnit. If you are reading this post, leave a comment and show Ginny some love!
Chaya's new project is a hat that she is knitting in the round. !! It is even going to be striped. She started her 2nd color this week, but we neglected to get a pic. We will have to be sure to do that next week. Chaya told us knitting in the round goes fast. It does! Good job, Chaya!
We don't really seek to 'offer advice;' but we are definitely about community! What we do is facilitate a space where neighbors learn a craft and listen to stories (personal & literature) together to help them connect and know each other better.

Ginny is the one who wondered with Jaime if there was something they could do with a bunch of kids who were hanging at her house after school on a regular basis. They decided to teach them to knit and read stories together and LitKnit was born! Now, the Janelle LitKnit circle is four years old. People have come and gone through the circle as they have moved in or out of the neighborhood, but we still have 3 original circle members besides the Janelle family! If you want to see pictures of their circle through the years, go to our Facebook page and look at the older years worth of pics. What a journey!
