Are you a knitter who has longed to knit with others? Have you always wanted to be a knitter, but are
intimidated by all of the paraphernalia, complicated stitches and impossible-to-understand instructions?
All students, staff and faculty are welcome.
Please bring a brown bag lunch or grab-and-go lunch.
