KnitMaine-ia seeking handmade lobsters to raise awareness
Seeking knitters and crocheters to get involved and contribute a crustacean or two to support our bay. A proposed dredging project calls for nearly one million cubic yards of potentially mercury-contaminated material to be dumped on fertile shellfish grounds between Belfast and Islesboro. Stuffed lobsters and lobster-claw mittens will be collected and sold in the upcoming months. All proceeds will go to Friends of Penobscot Bay. Please help spread the word! Free patterns are available on the KnitMaine-ia Facebook page, or by contacting Jillian Liversidge at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-653-1428.
