Are you an experienced knitter? Have you never knitted in your life but would like to learn? Do you crochet? All are welcome at Deanwood’s new knitting club. Bring your own needles, hooks and yarn, or borrow our needles while you’re here and use our craft wool. We can help you get started on a basic project and help each other through any tangles. There are no “instructors” here, just friendly faces who want to learn together. Bring your projects or just a curious attitude. Recommended for ages 9 and up.
