Looking for a new (and productive) hobby? Although Harvard students may find they come few and far between, a campus knitting club is allowing some to pursue a new pastime while simultaneously helping charitable causes.
A Stitch in Time—which was recently revitalized by co-presidents Yvette Ramirez '12 and Lily E. Higgins '12—teaches and fosters knitting among students by providing supplies and instructions to club members. ASIT also connects club members with charity organizations in need of hand-knit donations. Currently, the club works with Friends of Boston’s Homeless, Cradles to Crayons, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the Blum Cancer Resource Room at MGH, and is working to expand its donation network, according to Ramirez.
