Knitter's Galore at the West!

Now that the colder weather is here, students from Year 1 to Year 6 are learning to knit so they can create some warm winter woolies for themselves! Ms Dafter and Mrs Barrett have been overwhelmed with the number of boys and girls coming along each Friday lunchtime to learn to knit, and have been very impressed with how quickly some students are catching on to their new craft. There are many colourful projects on the go at the moment, including beanies, scarves (in footy team colours) and even a blanket. Ms Dafter is encouraging Year 6 knitters to work hard so that they can wear their woollen creations when they go to Canberra in Term 3.
Learning to knit is a fun and easy hobby and Ms Dafter and Mrs Barret look forward to seeing more knitters join the group in the near future. Well done to everyone who has started knitting and we look forward to seeing your finished projects soon!
