It's hard to believe that school is back in session and fall weather will soon be here. That means that the end of the year holidays are not too far away. Many people are determining that instead of purchasing gifts to give, they prefer to make items for their special someones. Hand-knit items are gifts that come from your heart through your hands into the hands of others. If you are thinking of making hand-knit gifts this year, but are looking for ideas, or you want to learn how to knit, come to your local branch. We have lots of books on knitting, crocheting, as well as many other handicrafts.
If you missed the Stitches West Knitters Convention last weekend at the Santa Clara Convention Center, don’t fret. The Rose Garden Library has a knitting circle that meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month in the Community Room downstairs and the library has a myriad of knitting pattern titles that provide inspiration for your next creative project. The following titles are the latest to arrive at Rose Garden Branch:
Knitting Green by Ann Budd
Modern Top Down Knitting by Kristina McGowan
Scarves and Shawls for Yarn Lovers by Carri Hammett
Do you want to learn to knit or crochet, to teach others or already working on a project? Then the Pearl Avenue Knit and Crochet Club is just for you. The group meets every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. in the Pearl Avenue Library near the fireplace. Join this group for fun conversation and to learn new tips and tricks! Some yarn and supplies will be provided by the Friends of the Pearl Avenue Library. Come join the fun! All ages are welcome.
