with cooler weather and colorful trees it’s finally starting to feel like fall, which is the perfect time to cuddle up with your first knitting project of the season. join our one night to knit workshop on friday dec 13 at 7pm to learn how to make a fashionable slouchy hat or fingerless mitts from start to finish. our instructor has dubbed it a crafty 5k: not too labor intensive for first-timers and the perfect refresher for those of us that need help dusting off the ol’ needles. hope to see you!
hope you and your family have a fun holiday.
