Sit 'n Knit  

"Warming up the homeless community stitch by stitch."

Welcome to Sit 'n Knit!

Just when you thought no one cared about the well being of someone in need, in enters Sit 'n Knit. We have emerged as an upcoming leader and authority in the non-profit arena. As you know, our focus is to provide hand knit and crochet scarves and hats to homeless people in warming centers in Michigan. Being homeless in Michigan is not exactly the best situation.


As we all just went through a horrible winter with temperatures below zero and an enormous amount of snow, just imagine braving that without having a permanent residence? Imagine braving that while being outside? A scarf or hat would have definitely helped a homeless person this winter.

Something for everyone! Look at this adorable hat that Shalynne Barr made.

It will be beautiful on a baby girl of a homeless family. You too can make items like this! We have yarn in stock just waiting to be knitted or crocheted by you.
