AND ...

I would like to thank the C-U Stitch'n'Bitchers, Christina Tapp, Katie Martin, Brigitte Pieke and Klose Knit, Rachel Charlie Storm @ The WRC Knit Happens and Thelma Uranga of El Stitch y Bitch, for all of their effort in making tonight's community yarn bombing such a success! And last but NOT LEAST, a HUGE thanks to all of the knitters and crocheters in the C-U community who contributed ...to the cause! I cannot thank you all enough! More pictures are coming!

Don't fret if you missed meeting up with us, knitted and crocheted blocks can still be added at any time!

Hope to see you Sunday at S'n'B!
