Knit or Not

Interested in Knitting and Visiting? This is the group for you

The Knit or Not group will meet on the following dates over the summer:

June 14

July 12

August 9

We meet at the church hall at 9:30 and are usually there until around 11:30.  Meetings are very casual.  Knitting is not required.  It is very easy, though, and if you would like to learn, we will be glad to teach you!  If you have patterns to share, bring them along.  If you have another small craft (or if you crochet), bring that along, or just come, be part of the group, and enjoy socializing with other women.  Some of us are starting to work on some projects to donate to others, and you are welcome to participate.  We may try to work jointly on a prayer shawl by passing it around in the group so everyone who knits can knit a few rows.  We welcome your suggestions about what we can make and where it should be donated.

All are welcome.  It is not necessary to be a member of the Church of the Holy Communion.

Bring a beverage of your choice and come enjoy the morning!
