The Stitch Doctor Is IN!

Now through January!

yarnFellow knitters and crocheters: are you swamped by swatches? Incensed by increases? Peeved at patterns? In knots over SL1 K2TOG PSSO? Oh, and do you have a gift deadline? We can help! From now through the holidays, the knitters and crocheters of the Morrill Memorial Library will be available by appointment to help with knitting and crochet quandaries. Please bring all of the materials for your project, including needles and patterns. Also, please let us know ahead of time what sort of project you’d like help with, in case we need to look up a new technique. A second pair of eyes can’t hurt!

Please contact Adult Services Librarian Liz Reed to schedule all appointments and to answer any questions about this service. Liz can be reached at 781-769-0200 x110 or
