Whether you've never knit a thing in your life, you are an avid knitter, or knitting is something you want to get back to, this group is for you.

This group is facilitated by Brooke Willis, a knitting enthusiast experienced in teaching beginners. You can join in conversation or, quietly knit to your heart's content!

Knit something for yourself, or knit a personal gift to give away! We will be working on small projects with simple patterns such as scarves (simple) or hats (more involved). All knitting supplies will be provided.
