Helping babies, knitting and a free lunch? Sign me up! The Triangle Literacy Council (TLC) is hosting it’s first “Knit In” in The Classroom at The Frontier (800 Park Offices Drive, Research Triangle Park) and wants you there! The TLC has created a brand new program called Bouncing Baby Bookworms and the goal is to use this program to encourage new moms to read to their newborn babies,  and the Council plans on doing that by providing each new mom with a Bookworm Bundle delivered by Storks! These bundles will be filled with baby books, a rubber duck, a blanket and parent resources to jumpstart their baby’s literacy. The Council needs volunteers like you to help make the baby blankets to add to them! If you love to knit and enjoy good food, good company and volunteering for a good cause, then bring along your needles and yarn and come meet up at The Frontier. The group will be in The Classroom on the first floor. Please RSVP by Friday, October 13th. If you have any questions or would like to RSVP, please contact the council by phone or email. Happy Knitting! Remember, “It’s Never Too Early To Learn How To Read!” The Council is looking for blankets that are between 30 x 30 or 36 x 36; soft/light fibers are preferable. Creativity with designs is encouraged so that each blanket is different. If you don’t knit or won’t have the time to stop by, feel free to donate a new or unused baby blanket or books at the main office anytime to help out with the cause!
