These squares will later be joined together to make full size afghans. Knitting expert Tamara Kelley will lead the group. She will help beginners learn the knit stitch and will also teach new techniques to more advanced knitters. Bring your own size 7 knitting needles if you can or let us know if you would like to borrow a pair from the library. We have a supply of yarn, however we will accept donations of additional medium weight acrylic yarn for the project. REGISTRATION is required and begins 2 weeks before each session.   We will also accept knitted or crocheted afghan squares made at home from all library users this summer.
