1 pair size #9 straight single-pointed knitting needles

1 C/2 crochet hook

2 skeins or worsted weight (4-ply) yarn - smooth recommended vs textured nubby yarns

Knitting Group


with Melanie Zagwyn

Calendar Feb 12, 2020 at 5 pm

Are you looking for a knitting group where you can work on a project while socializing with other knitters?   Look no further than our new group-a blend of fiber crafters of all levels who knit on needles, a jiffy loom or crochet.  This is not a "learn to knit class", however, Art Director Melanie Zagwyn, who has over 30 years of experience with fiber crafts, will be available to lend her assistance and expertise.  These monthly gatherings are sponsored by New England Village, a nonprofit organization that supports adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Open to adults 18+.  Beginners with basic knitting experience welcome.
