Community Scarf Baskets

A new round of community scarf baskets are going out!

The baskets are filled with yarn and knitting needles and are set up in various locations around Ojai.  Community members are invited to sit and knit as much or little as they would like and then leave the basket for the next person to knit along.  Knitters of all levels are encouraged to join, and all knitting stitches and designs are welcome!

Keep an eye out for these baskets around town!  Once you find one, post a picture of yourself knitting the scarf on Facebook and Instagram with the hashtag #knittinginrecovery

We always end up with some truly one-of-a-kind collaborative pieces:

Once the scarves are finished, they are donated to local homeless shelters to keep our less-fortunate community members warm and loved during the colder months.
