We are learning to knit at the Montbello Library! During our Monday evening Plaza programming, our knitting circle takes over the storytime room with our yarn and needles. We are a diverse group of adults, teenagers, and a few children, and it’s a lot of fun getting to know each other.
We’re learning the basics of knitting, and one of our members has offered to teach us all to crochet, too. Some of our kids have even been sewing toys out of felt! We’ve been meeting for a couple of months now, and many of us have finished our very first knitting and sewing projects.
We have a multitude of interesting programs coming up this week. If you like crafts, writing or cooking you will want to be sure to visit us. A reminder--please call in advance to sign up for all of the following writing and craft programs!
We have a lot of options for you on Saturday, January 11. At 10 a.m. Barb Lundy, a Colorado author, will be at Ross-University Hills for a poetry program. Poetry Tells Life Stories helps us bring our view of the world, language and our experiences to life through the art of poetry. There will be writing and sharing as well as information about the publishing process.
