Have you ever wanted to learn to knit?  Of course you have!  This is your opportunity to participate in this ancient and very fun craft.  We will start with the basics, then move up to more complex stitches.  Go at your own pace, and soon, you will be making your own special projects.  Invite a friend to learn together, and meet other children in the neighborhood.  We hope to see you there!

*For ages 7-13 years.*  

*LIMIT OF 15 STUDENTS PER SESSION.*

*NEEDLES AND YARN ARE PROVIDED, ALTHOUGH YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO BRING YOUR OWN.*
