How about using the extra day in 2016 to start a handmade gift for a mariner? Choose from any of our patterns. (The Oliver’s Cap and our Cowl knit up pretty quickly.) Cast on Monday, February 29, and even if you don’t finish it on leap day itself, keep going. The extra hours add up.
Share your project on social media using the hashtag #LeapKnit and join the conversation with Christmas at Sea on Facebook and Twitter.
When you’ve finished your project, send it to #LeapKnit, The Seamen’s Church Institute, Christmas at Sea, 118 Export Street, Port Newark, NJ 07114. We’ll tag, tally them up and celebrate all we’ve accomplished because of an extra day for mariners in 2016.
