Now its time for giving Tuesday


a time to think of those less fortunate.
We at TKE have chosen to support the local Soup Kitchen at Trinity Episcopal Church in Bethlehem.  
Mother Laura says they already have a large box of knit hats ready to go.  But they can really use scarves and cowls- (TKE has lots of patterns), and socks- not hand knit socks- just the good cotton ones from Target or Walmart.  
Dry socks are a most needed item for the homeless members of our community.  We will be collecting all these at The Knitter’s Edge. 
And remember, this Saturday December 1– 
Brian Young – our favorite local potter – will be at the shop with his beautiful wares- and he has much more than just yarn bowls!

Sales Continue!
