We are looking for experienced knitters to assist, beginners to learn and ask questions, and friends to come along and spice up the evening. We can have sweets, coffee, wine, whatever you wish. All you have to do is come and voice a desire!
Bring along some yarn and needles. We will have lots with us, but it helps if you bring your own.
You can just stitch till you are comfortable or start a simple project right away!
For those who are not quite beginners any more, come learn some new stitches and techniques.
