This post is from one of our awesome community leaders, Team Cranberry Squared!
Team Cranberry Squared is proud to represent Cranberry Township, PA in Butler County for Knit the Bridge. We are a team of 50 Cranberry Residents, in partnership with Cranberry Township Girl Scouts and our Cranberry Public Library.
Our team was headed by 4 members of Girl Scout Troop 20668: Katie Bablak, Sydni McConnell, Kara Ristey, (ages 12) and Patti Ristey, one of our Girl Scout Troop Leaders.
Katie, Sydni and Kara assisted Patti in teaching 3 Cranberry Girl Scout Troops to knit. We were also supported by Rachael Trioanos, Youth Librarian at our Cranberry Public Library and enjoyed presenting at a Teen Art Club meeting. Many Library patrons graciously knit rows on a square that was stationed in our Library. Thanks to all the knitters who attended one of our events, learned to knit, helped weave in ends and cheered on our efforts!

Every Cranberry Twp resident knows the “blue square” in our Municipal Building located right off Rt. 19. It is home to our Library, Police Department , Senior Center, Parks and Recreation Department and Township Headquarters. Our panel is made of 36 individual knit 8×8 inch squares in many shades of cranberry red. The upper right corner of our panel is a square of blue and green- our Knit the Bridge panel has a little piece of “blue square” to show our appreciation for our community! Team Cranberry Squared is thrilled to participate in this historic & dynamic art event in Pittsburgh.
