knitHave you ever wanted to learn to knit, but don’t have the tools and aren’t sure who to ask? This program is for you! Several librarians, who happen to be veteran knitters, will lead a workshop about how to knit, from casting on to casting off. The class will work together on the same project, and all materials will be provided in a kit for $5.00. After you’ve taken the Learn to Knit Class you’ll be able to join us later in the month for Stitch Therapy on May 17th to continue working on your project.
