Knitting and Crocheting Circle
A weekly Knitting and Crocheting Circle. We will continue to make 8" squares to send to the Knit-a Square project for the AIDS orphans of southern Africa. From time to time we will knit for other charities as well. Also bring your own project pattern, yarn, needles and hooks and we will help each other with pattern directions and stitches as we go along. The library has many pattern books but feel free to bring your favorite patterns and Internet sites to share. Whether you choose to knit for charity or also work on your own project, a hat, a ruffled scarf or a baby item, this workshop will get you going on your project list or perhaps help you finish that project stuck in the back of your closet! Beginners are welcome. Held at The Nantucket Atheneum Main Floor, 1 India Street
