Student Officers: TBA
First meeting:  Tuesday, August 15 in trailer 4
meeting time: 2:15 - 3:00 pm. Students will need to exit the building at 3:00 and can wait for their ride by the flagpole.

Purpose:
The purpose of the knitting club is to revive the art of knitting while providing a sense of camaraderie for the students. The students will first learn to knit. Guidance will be offered as the students knit their own individual projects. The members will work on service projects such as knitting hats for hospital infants, socks/scarves for homeless shelters, and mittens for children's shelters. Each member of the club must furnish their own needles and yarn. We have some yarn that is free for beginners to use while learning to knit.  . Experienced and beginning knitters are welcome.

Supplies needed for the first meeting:

One 4 oz. Skein knitting (worsted weight) yarn

Size 10 knitting needles, approx. 11 inches long

Where to get these things? Wal mart, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Yarn Garden

Requirements of members: Attend weekly meetings, participate in service project, no dues

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO KNOW HOW TO KNIT. WE WILL TEACH YOU!
