You may bring your own needles, hooks and yarn or some will be provided while supplies last. This program is designed for adults. 

Handmade at HCPL: Knitting Groups and More

 

Cool weather is here, and you know what that means: before you can say 'credit card limit,' you’ll be racking your ho-ho-hopelessly overtaxed brain for something to give Aunt Tildie that will show her how much you love her, but won’t have you scrounging for every last penny of loose change in the sofa cushions. Why not knit her a festive tea cozy or a set of golf club head covers?

One Skein Away

You just finished a needlework project and have a skein or two of yarn left over.  Do you add it to your pile of hodge podge yarn?  Or do you go to the library and check out a one-skein book for ideas on how to make something useful with so little.  Click here for a list of what we have.

Knitting Today

Wacky Baby KnitsLong ago, people knitted nice sedate sweaters and tasteful little hats.  Yarn colors and textures fit into a well-known collection.  That was then.  THIS is now!  Check out Wacky Baby Knits: 20 Knitted Designs for the Fashion-Conscious Toddler by Alison Jenkins.  I think I’m going to try the Frog Suit myself.
