Local knitters and crocheters are needed on U Street this weekend to help make blankets for babies who live at the D.C. General homeless shelter.

Off Road Indoor Cycling at 905 U St. NW is scheduled to host volunteer knitters and crocheters Sunday from 4:30 to 6 p.m. as part of the DC Warm Baby Project. Organizers of the initiative look to make blankets for each of D.C. General’s 200 babies.

Experience with knitting and crocheting isn’t necessary to participate. Organizers also will supply yarn for free. But they encourage volunteers to make a $10 donation for supplies.

“Together we can give every baby something warm this winter to call their own,” DC Warm Baby Project’s Facebook page says.
