CALLING ALL CROTON KNITTERS: Introducing a new series here at EverythingCroton: THE VINTAGE KNITTER! - We got the idea when Hallie Flanagan Wolfe of hallieflanaganwolfegardens.com, recently donated a small cache of dogeared but very interesting vintage knitting and crochet magazines from the 1940's through the 1960's. Some of these patterns are simply gorgeous!
We're starting the series off with a vintage mid-1950's pattern for a "Date Sweater"! Click on the photo for all the instructions.
And don't forget that 11/15 is KNITTING NIGHT at the Croton Library: The Croton Free Library is organizing a knitting/crochet circle on Tuesday evenings once a month. It is not a class—there will be no teacher—we will learn from each other. So bring your projects, your creativity, your expertise, or just your enthusiasm and join us on Tuesday, November 15 at 7:00 p.m. for the first meeting.
Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
There was what is presently being billed as an electrical fire at the newly renovated Anton Restaurant last night. (There were reports of exploding transformers in the area last evening as well; Con Edison was in the area's manhole earlier today.)
The fire department, punched out nearly all the windows to vent the fire which appears to be largely contained to the inside. As soon as we have more details, we will let you know.
Our hearts go out to the owners of Anton as they deal with this unfortunate situation and the necessary repairs.
UMAMI is still without power (using a generator) and several nearby businesses are also still without power. See also http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2011/10/post-storm-sunday-update.html
Residents on Brook St. were evacuated last night when a telephone pole snapped and brought down several along with it.
They were taken to the municipal building.
