Knit One, Purl Two: A Monthly Drop-In Knitting Circle

It’s a new year, and time to remind you all of Fremont Main Library’s informal knitting circle – Knit One, Purl Two. This is not a class, but if you have never knitted before, bring yarn and knitting needles and we’ll get you started.

On 21 January we will be meeting in the Van Doorn Room (to the left in the Lobby as you enter the Fremont Main Library building) from 7-8pm. Then, due to some scheduling conflicts (sorry, mea culpa), this program will be moving to the fourth Monday of each month. On each Monday, we will be meeting in Conference Room A (on the right hand side of the Lobby as you enter.)

Join us for conversation, and fun with the fiber arts!

Dates for 2009: 1/21, 2/23, 3/23, 4/27, (no meeting on 5/25 as it is a holiday), 6/22, 7/27, 8/24, 9/28, 10/26, 11/23, 12/28.

Youtube isn’t merely a source for music videos, trailers, and the most recent internet phenomenon. It is also an excellent source for instructional videos of all sorts. You can learn everything from martial arts moves to how to tie a Double Windsor knot in your tie. I run the Knitting Circle here at the Fremont Main library. (Third Wednesday of every month. Bring your project and join us!) So, today I was doing a bit of searching on Youtube on the topics of knitting and crochet. Unfortunately, most of the videos I discovered don’t allow embedding, so you’ll have to follow the links below to watch the video of your choice.
