Activity #417: Knit with your baby

There is a lovely knitting shop in Oakland that invites us to come and knit with other moms, babies and moms-to-be. If you are a local to this area, check out Article Pract on Thursdays at 10.30.

Sarah in Portland wrote, “Mabel’s has long offered a knitting with babies hour on Mondays (1 to 3 p.m. I think), although I’ve most often gone with my babies at odd times and, often, found other babies there.”

Abundant Yarn & Dyeworks, also in Portland, has “clubs” — one is expectant moms, etc. They don’t have a specific time for babies now, either, but they welcome babies with toys and a little table just for them in the cafe.

Our Cambridge, MA correspondent, another Sarah, wrote “Minds Eye Yarns does not have a specific new moms group, however babies and children are always welcome, so long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian! We also have lots of wonderful knitting patterns for baby and children’s clothing, toys, blankets etc, so come on down and check us out!”
