Has it been a year already?

Here are some pictures from last year's relay.
This is the morning after - don't we look bright-eyed & bushy-tailed? Musta been the knitting!!

Hi, this is Denise, sometimes known as Dr. Knit., president of the Downtown Knit Collective.

Over the past year we've had lots of support from DKC members knitting pink scarves and we're really excited about the Relay for Life, coming up on June 22-23.

Once again our team of ten will spend the night knitting and chatting. If you're in the neighbourhood (Forest Hill Memorial Park, near Eglinton and Bathurst in Toronto), please drop in and say hello! And if you happen to have knitted a pink scarf, we'd be very pleased to accept it to add to our contributions!

Please visit our blog again and see what's happening.


This is Joan, captain of the DKC Relay for Life team. We have a special dispensation to knit for a cure during the relay - isn't that awesome?! You can pledge our team here. It's okay - the team members will be taking turns with the link - hee hee. We're going to be knitting the night away on June 22nd at the Forest Hill Memorial Park.

Throughout the year we will continue to knit scarves which are donated to the Central Toronto division of the Cdn Cancer Society who pass them along to various centres & hospices for distribution to survivors - all of whom deserve their own special pink ribbon of hope!
We will gladly accept finished pink scarves or donations of pink yarn for our knitters to use. Please leave a comment and we'll let you know where to send them.
We will update the blog with pictures of scarves, letters from survivors and thanks for our sponsors.
