Knitting Group

With the help of a new leader, this group is once again engaged in improving their skills. Some are beginning to learn how to knit while others are continuing to minimize their mistakes and move on to beautifully finished products. The more advanced knitters are more than willing to assist the beginners so there is always a feeling of accomplishment and a minimum of frustration as they all work together.
