The Transition Knitting Circle brings people together in a relaxed atmosphere to learn new skills. It is designed to build networks across all age groups. As practical abilities are passed on, our community moves closer to self-reliance and resilience.
One or more volunteer facilitators are always present to lend a hand and beginners, intermediate and experienced knitters are welcome. Sharing skills in this way creates positive feelings, celebrates creativity and empowers participants, bolstering a “can do” perspective.
We offer patterns and help for several small knitting projects that can be accomplished in a seven-week period, such as baby socks, dishcloths, fingerless mitts, or pneumonia vests for a charitable organization. We can also teach you to knit from scratch or help out with your on-going project. Or come just to do your own thing, drink tea and be together!
The group meets in different venues on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. from September through May. Locations are posted on the Knitting Circle Facebook page and on this site’s calendar.
