Super Bowl Charity Knitting

Knitty Gritty is hosting a knit in on Super Bowl Sunday in order to encourage knitting for charity.

On February 4th, 2007, Knitty Gritty, the DIY Network's knitting show hosted by Vickie Howell, is running a matharon of episodes from 5 P.M. to 11 P.M. EST. During the matharon, Vickie and DIY network are encouraging the knitting of 7"x9" squares for Warm Up America!, a charitable organization dedicated to the creation of handmade blankets, clothing and accessories to help those in need.

The 7"x9" squares knit and donated by DIY viewers will be sewn together into blankets, and distributed to women's shelters, nursing homes and daycare centers.

For more information on how to participate in DIY's year-long initiative, including a pattern for the square, log on to www.DIYnetwork.com/knit.

Vickie Howell will also have a live blog during the event which is being dubbed "Super Knit Sunday".
