Knitting Club’s First Stitches!

Well, Zoe has really launched something wonderful here! A bigger group attended and knitted last week than were able to be photographed before I left for the Junior School.

There have been a number of emails requesting the time of the next meeting. Thursday lunchtimes from 1.05 pm until 1.45 – and parents, teachers and students are all welcome.

Parents, please sign in with Reception before coming in to the library.

Knitting Club is launched

knitting 1knitting 2On Thursday last week Zoe’s long held dream of starting a knitting club came to fruition.  We were all delighted by the number who came, and very pleased to see so many Year 11 boys stepping up to the mark. Days and times are now set (Thursdays at recess or other times as requested), wool and needles have been sourced, and a scarf pattern booklet has been purchased for these amazing young men to use for reference.

There will be lessons available for beginners – which I believe is the category of this cohort – and we have some Year 8 students who intend to come along.

New members will be welcome – and as Zoe told members: learning a new skill can count towards Duke of Edinburgh awards, as can social service. As we intend knitting for the aged and or the homeless, two boxes can be ticked off by attending one event for a few weeks until we finish a scarf or a square!
