What's Included

When is the perfect time to knit? When the leaves begin to change color and the temperatures begin to drop, and there is no better time to get started on scarves and other projects for holiday gifts. Under the direction of expert knitter Joanne Sharpless, newcomers will master how to knit and purl. Returning students will move on to more advanced skills, such as tying a slipknot, casting on and off and knitting in the round to make hats. Studies have shown that knitting enhances a person's mood, reduces stress and boosts cognitive functioning. So Keep Calm and Knit On! ASPire coverage, including a snack, from 3:10-3:30 p.m. is included in the cost of the club. Please note: GFS is closed on Wednesday, October 12 and Wednesday, November 23, so there will no club on those days and the final club session will take place on Wednesday, December 7.
