KENT -- Knitting for Those in Need (KTN), a not-for-profit charitable organization based in Kent, Ohio, will join its Kent State University student chapter in sponsoring a 12-hour Knit-a-Thon on March 10 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at the Kent State University Library, 4th floor.

The event is free and open to the public. Experienced and non-knitters are welcome. Supplies are provided, and a simple form of knitting will be taught during the event. Come when you can, leave when you need to. The volunteer service organization promotes the use of the yarn arts of loom knitting, needle knitting and crochet to create warm items to serve people of need in the community.
