Knitting for Newbies and Pros

Newbies and pros, come join us for a 5-week Knitting Experience
Sundays at 4:30 pm February 26 – March 6

Nora Chismore (PhD student at UNL) will teach us newbies how to knit, those of you with experience can help us out or just come along for the company and together we’ll knit (or learn how to knit!) prayer shawls for the church. We’ll meet in Room 216 Sundays 4:30 – 5:30 pm, and then we’ll join the youth group for dinner at 5:30.

If you want to learn how to knit, this is your chance!

If you’re learning:  bring with you:

8 24-inch long circular needles and several skeins of solid color smooth textured worsted weight yarn. (It will likely say worsted weight on the label.)  We recommend bring yard that is of a medium color, as it is easier to see.  You’ll need 4-6 skeins of yarn.  Joann’s and Michaels both have yarn and needles that will work.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a clue what to do with that – that’s what the class is about!

If you’ve been knitting forever – well, bring what works for you!

Join us for some time making friends, learning, and of course, eating, as we knit to surround our community in the warmth of prayer.


Here is a a picture of some worsted weight yarn just as an example of the weight and texture.
