Program Description

Event Details

Are you looking for new ideas and designs for your knitting or crochet project? Stumped by a difficult pattern or technique? Or perhaps you're just a brand-new "yarnie" who wants to learn? The experienced folks in the Capital District Knitting Guild are here to help! The group, which started in a yarn shop that has since gone out of business, meets at the Library every second Monday of the month from 6-8 pm. The Guild members have experience working in yarn shops and teaching classes, so they have a passion for the craft! There is always someone who can lend a hand with a tough pattern, or who is willing to demonstrate beginning technique. The group also offers a different teaching topic each week, such as learning how to knit Brioche (a ribbed technique with yarn, not bread!) or demonstrating entrelac (the art of the textured diamond pattern). Stop in and get "hooked" on knitting or crochet!
