Find these Scarves!

Okay Ojai friends, this one is a two-fer!  Find these scarves!  We hid them somewhere around town.  Once you find them, take a picture of yourself knitting the scarf and post it to Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #knittinginrecovery .  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and/or Instagram @knittinginrecovery to be automatically entered into a raffle for a yarn basket of your own.

Hint: You can get a double-shot of espresso and knitting at this location!

Once the scarf is finished, it will be donated to a local charity for our less fortunate community members.

Happy hunting!

Find this Basket!

Find this basket!  We recently expanded our Community Scarf Basket program to Ventura, and this basket is at our second Ventura partner business. Hint: this location is quickly becoming a local favorite hang, especially after a hot yoga sesh.

Community Scarf Baskets, Oct 2016

October, 2016, Knitting in Recovery began another round of community scarf baskets in Ojai.  Baskets of yarn and knitting needles were placed in various locations around town along with instructions for the public to join in and help knit scarves for those in need.

There were ten scarf baskets, each with its own coordinating colors of yarn.

Together we were able to create some very unique, collaborative scarves that were donated to local shelters to keep people warm during the colder months and make them feel loved during the holiday season.
