On the third Monday of the month a group of enthusiastic knitters meet in the Resource Room at the Duxbury Free Library. From 6:00 - 8:00 you can find knitters of various skill levels with yarn between their fingers. We would love you to join us. If you can't, follow us here!

Yarn Bomb at 77 Alden Street!

Monster Feet!!
 Make sure you visit us and see our yarn bombing at the library!

If you are not familiar with term 'yarn bomb', here is the definition from wikipedia -

Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that uses colorful displays of knitted or crocheted fiber as opposed to paint or chalk. unlike other forms of graffiti, they are easily removed and there is no damage to the structures they covered. It is usually done secretively with the attempt of leaving a little whimsy behind.

Sweaters to keep the trees warm.

Since we have Ann Hood visiting the library on Sunday (with some of her writer friends that also knit!), we thought we would welcome them by doing a little yarn bombing. So . . .  under the cover of darkness last Sunday night, the trees in front of the library were given bright sweaters (just in time too . . . it was freezing out!). 

A dragon takes over the bike rack!

Spider webs on the balcony!

But we didn't stop there! Make sure you visit inside the library . . . we have mittens on the rocking chair, socks on the sign holder, wristlets on the hand sanitizer . . . and more!

Of course we also have knitting books on display!

Until next time, keep your nose in a book or your fingers in fiber.
