At the cooking class today, I talked with Katherine Earle and she would be willing to coordinate this activity at IWAP for us--we will discuss it tomorrow, Ann

I just borrowed some books about knitting from library and plan to buy tools this weekend because I have pets (two rats, Remmie and Ricy) and want to knit clothes for them. I never knit before and want to learn. I know there is a knitting group in the library but I have time conflict to attend.
I cannot attend meeting tommorow but I want to know when and where it will be. Great! bounce

There's 2 nice places to learn how to knit:
-At the end of Murray avenue going towards the Highway on the left side. (Katherine knows it too)
-Near Trader Joe, Staples and Mc donalds --> http://www.naturalstitches.com/

In both places you can sit in sofa, knit, eat cake, drink tea coffee, and chatt with other persons to exchange ideas and they can also teach you how to knit!

In the Carnegie main library children section there's a few good books well explained with simple nice projetc! I started like this it was fun.
Good luck!

I know the one on Murray, very nice and very expensive! affraid
I go to Michael's, I have a 40% off coupon every week in my mail box.

It is nice to knit together rather than knitting alone. We'd better get together before winter is over Razz .

i just come back from Target
and i found for just 1$ a little book...."knitting for dummies" pocket edition -pam allen
it is really the basics....but at least now i have the right vocabulary if somebody ask something....
it could be a good instrument if we organize a class for beginners....
i'll bring it at the next meeting( if i don't forget )
