Troke Knitters
Troke Branch Library
Wednesday, Aug. 21, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Every Wednesday from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. the Margaret K. Troke Branch Library presents the Troke Knitters Program.

The Troke Knitters gather primarily to make knitted goods suitable for charitable causes in our community. Participants may keep their products for their own use or donate them to one of these charitable causes.

For beginners who wish to learn knitting, Ms. Zetter will offer informal instruction. If participants want to gather for the camaraderie and knit for themselves, they are also welcome and will be recipients of her assistance as needed. All ages and genders from 8 to 100 (or more!) are welcome.

Participants need to provide their own needles and yarn. Supplies are available at local craft stores. Participants should bring:
Their choice of acrylic yarns, worsted weight, e.g. Lion brand homespun, soft Red Heart, Caron Simply Soft or other brand of soft yarn (no wool)
Size 7 or 8 knitting needles, preferably circular needles, 16" length
Scissors, large-eye darning needle and package of stitch markers
Notebook and pen
Continue the learning by checking out books, reviewing online databases, and searching the Internet – all for free at your local public library!
