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!

From the Library's Shelves

Pretty cool, huh?!
You can keep this wonderful
 box of tools for 28 days!
Okay, imagine this. A box filled with colorful double-pointed needles (sizes 4-8), a circular needle set (sizes 4-11), a crochet hook to use if you drop a stitch, a Chibi needle to seam up your project, stitch markers, 2 reference books and a DVD of Elizabeth Zimmerman. Can it get any better? Well sure . . . let's make the box free!!

The library has a variety of 'toolboxes' available for circulation. Everything you need in one box to learn a skill. Have you ever wanted to play the Ukele, 
create polymer jewelry, bird watch or meditate? Check out a toolbox and you'll have everything you need to decide if you are ready to start a new hobby!

So, can you imagine how excited I was when I was asked to help create a knitting toolbox! Off I went to the yarn store to pick out needles. Next was the search for a good reference book and a DVD. 

If you are a beginner and you just don't have all the needles you need for your project yet, check the kit out. And if you are an experienced knitter, well check it out just to watch the Knitting Workshop with Elizabeth Zimmerman DVD and to read through the Reader's Digest Knitter's Handbook.

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