“Knitting is very conducive to thought.
It is nice to knit a while, put down the needles, write a while,
then take up the sock again. ~Dorothy Day

The first exchange of 2018 is coming soon.  Hope you can join in!  This one is designed for the beginning knitter.  Think: cast on, knit, yarn over, bind off.  I’m thrilled Anna Coyne can join us for the morning.  Anna is a wife, mother, writer, musician, and avid knitter living in St. Paul.  She’s an artist and teacher, and she’ll get us going on a first knitting project with ease (we’ll follow a simple washcloth pattern).  For a peek at Anna’s lovely work you can hop over to Middle West Knitting Co.  Anna will bring a variety of hand knit items along and we’ll leave a little chance to shop on the 24th as well.


Anyone with a bit more skill is also welcome to come and glean.  Just note in your RSVP whether you’re a beginner or an intermediate knitter.  Space is saved for beginners on a first come, first served basis, but we’ll keep a seat or two open if there’s room to spare.
