After School Knitting Class
We’ve been teaching a group of kids how to knit over the past few weeks. They have learned all about yarn, how to finger knit, and how to cast on. And some have already mastered the knit stitch!
We’re very excited with their progress and we’ll be updating you with more of their success in the coming weeks.
Halos of Hope Big Buzz
