The Margaret K. Troke Branch Library presents "Troke Knitters" every Wednesday from 2:00-3:30 p.m. during 2016. Knitting provides many benefits such as new friendships, camaraderie, and health benefits. In our community, there are many needs for knitted goods such as shawls for dialysis and chemotherapy patients, preemie hats, and scarves for children and adults. Participants may keep their products for their own use or donate them to one of these charitable causes.
Martha Zetter will offer informal instruction for beginners. All ages and genders from 8 to 100 (or more!) are welcome.
Participants need to provide their own needles and yarn. Participants should bring:
· Their choice of acrylic yarns, worsted weight, e.g. Lion brand homespun, soft Red Heart, Caron Simply Soft or another brand of soft yarn (no wool)
· Size 7 or 8 knitting needles, preferably circular needles
· Scissors, large-eye darning needle and package of stitch markers
· Notebook and pen
