11 28Cattywampus is hosting a free knitting party for people to knit beanies for the homeless on Friday, Nov. 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 209 W. Ojai Ave., Ojai.
Organizers say most knitters can make a chunky beanie in two to three hours and recommend using soft, chunky yarn. Knitters are welcome to come by any time.
At the end of the weekend, the hats will be collected and given to the homeless shelter network in Ojai.
Knitters can bring yarn from their own stash or pick out new yarn from Cattywampus, which will provide 10 percent off for participants on: 1 skein chunky or bulky yarn (Malabrigo Rasta, Woolfolk Hygge, or Loopy Mango Merino No. 5 are great choices) and US 13-19 cir- cular needles, 16 or 20 inches length.
