Join the knit/crochet circle at Cinnaminson Library!  This is a friendly, community oriented activity for adults, where you can get to know other knitters and crocheters. Instructor Diane Lawrence of “Knitting for God’s Kids” will teach new members the basics. If you already have a project you’re working on, come on out and join us, and the instructor will be on hand to provide guidance. Participants can work on projects for their own use or use their knitting or crochet skills to create items for a suggested charitable project. You will need to bring your own tools and materials. In January, we will focus on knitting lace. If you are a beginner, bring a 4 ply yarn and a US size 6 or 7 needle. Experienced knitters may use a 2 ply yarn with a US size 6 or 7 needle. This is a FREE class, but is limited to the first 15 people who sign up.
