Knitting and Crocheting at the library

The Knowledge Exchange knitting and crocheting group is having a time change. Starting Friday, June 6,  the Knowledge Exchange group will meet from 12:30-2:30 rather than 2:30-4:30. They will continue to meet in the Earl Elliott Room every Friday at the new time.

Come and knit or crochet with friends at the library on Fridays from 12:30-2:30. The group will continue to make lap blankets for Vets at the V.A. Hospital and Chemo Caps for patients at M.D. Anderson. They also make 8" squares to send to Africa to be made into blankets for babies who are HIV positive.

You can also bring your own project to work on while joining the conversation.
