Won’t You Be Our Valentines?

Surprise! If you’re walking through Dupont this morning, be sure to head north of the Metro along the west side of Connecticut Avenue up to Looped Yarn Works, then back down and over on R Street to 21st, and of course down 21st to the Phillips. You’ll discover hand-knit hearts weaving a cozy path. We’ll post more photos and stories here throughout the week about how this magic came to pass. A huge thank-you to each of you–knitters and non-knitters alike–who came out for last night’s knit-in and donated your handiwork for this loving cause.
