learning to knit

Kathleen Guild-Gunderson of the Fireside Yarn Club helped “newbies” learn the basics of knitting last Wednesday night during a “Youth Knitting Night” workshop at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre. Those on hand carefully followed along as she showed them how to “cast on”–creating the base line of stitches on a knitting needle. Guild-Gunderson and other experienced knitters can be found at the library for the Fireside Yarn Club each Wednesday at 6 p.m. No experience is required but they do ask that knitters bring their own supplies.
