Knitter's Club 2009

The Knitting Club is off to a great start this year with 20 keen knitters showing up on Wednesday, armed with brightly coloured wool and needles, ready to create beautiful knitted masterpieces! It is great to see many students returning this year after learning to knit in 2008 and these students are proving to be excellent helpers, assisting some of the new knitters this year. Ms Dafter has been assisted by Mrs Phillips who also shares a love of knitting, and they have sure been busy casting on and teaching basic knitting techniques to everyone. The children, from Years 3-6, are a very enthusiastic bunch and are planning to make nice warm scarves for Winter as well as little bags and purses. The group will meet every Wednesday at lunchtime in Ms Dafter’s classroom during the colder months. All knitters are welcome, but our spare needles have run out so be sure to bring along some of your own!
