BROOKLYN BOY KNITS: YARNEMENTARY IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS!
Louis Boria of Brooklyn Boy Knits has a dream that knitting will be taught in every classroom. Lion Brand® helped to get the ball rolling sponsoring the first Yarnementary event at PS 145 in New York City. In one day, thanks to the volunteer knitting teachers, over 200 students started stitching!
Have you been on the space shuttle or under a rock?

Now we know about Louis, not only for Yarnementary but for the stunning products he knits and sells on his site. Follow him, shop with him, support his work.
