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?

You say, “But I’ve never knitted anything in my life!” That’s where we come in. We have tons of materials to help you get started, like step-by-step knitting projects in our Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center database and pattern books for fashion tastes ranging from kitsch to couture. Even better, many branches host regular needlecraft groups, so, whether you’re a knitting ninja or a newbie, you'll find inspiration at HCPL.
