In an attempt to cut costs this holiday season, I am making many of my gifts. This is a challenge, as my â€œmaking stuffâ€ skills are limited to what I learned in 7th grade Home Economics, and things the Internet teaches me how to do.
I imagine it would be life changing to actually have a real person teach me such things, which is why I am probably a little too excited about stumbling upon the FREE â€œGet Your Knit Together and Knit Happensâ€ event! The third Saturday of each month, this group gets together at the Main Library to teach newbies how to knit or crochet and shoot the crafty shit. I also imagine they enjoy telling dirty knitting jokes and hold contests to see who can knit/crochet the fastest.
Even if that isn’t true (probably not since it is an all-ages event), this is still a great chance to have someone teach your un-crafty ass how to make neat things with your hands. Supplies will be provided to practice on but bring your own yarn and needles or hooks to start your own project or gift.
Get Your Knit Together and Knit Happens!
