'Beginning Knitting' offered twice Apr 15
Beginning Knitting will be offered at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Idea Studio twice on Saturday, April 15, at 10 a.m. and repeated at 1 p.m.
Needle arts aficionado Jan Stoegbauer will start at the very beginning of knitting, teaching how to cast on, how to knit and purl, how to cast off and how to read a yarn skein label. Knitters will start a washcloth and finish it at home from a pattern they will receive in class. Each participant must bring U.S. size 6 or 7 circular or straight knitting needles (sizes 5 and 8 will work), and a small skein of yarn (avoid 100 percent cotton).
Crafternoon programs are free and open to adults and teens in middle school or older. Space is strictly limited. No walk-ins or under-aged children allowed. Registration is taken online only and begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 1, at the Calendar.
Upcoming Crafternoon programs are:
- May 20: Mandala Stones
- June 17: Patriotic Light String
