Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival!

Knit and crochet are the basic building blocks of Knit the Bridge.

Here at KtB we love knit and crochet because it’s accessible, it’s simple (at it’s most basic), the tools are affordable (think thrift store yarn and two pencils…), it’s social, and it’s addictive…

At the Knit & Crochet Fest – look for us under the neon tower

And every year in the Pittsburgh area there’s a fabulous festival that brings yarn, needles, hooks, and enthusiasts together –

It’s called the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival and it starts tomorrow!

Hanging panels makes good practice...
