Those crazy Yarnstormers are at it again.
The West Flamingo Senior Center Yarnstormers who covered a Maryland Parkway pedestrian bridge in yarn last summer have developed their next project. The group is crocheting flowers to cover a wall in the main lobby of the center.
They are inviting enthusiastic knitters and crochet artists of all ages to join them in a morning Yarn-a-Thon from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, August 10 to help them finish the project.
Crafters will be given yarn while they knit or crochet granny squares, circles or flowers. All of the creations will be used at the center for yarnstorming projects. There will be a yoga room for stretching between creations, a break room with refreshments and a room for learning the basics of knitting and crocheting. Parents and grandparents are encouraged to bring their younger family members 8 years old and up to learn basic stitches.
