Knitting club resumes, finds organization to team with

Knitting Club is back in action, meeting on Thursdays at 3:00 p.m. in room 450.

“Anyone can come,” sponsor Jill Chittum said. “Knitters and crocheters, experienced or anyone who wants to learn.”
Yarn and needles are helpful, but not necessary for each meeting.
“If you don’t have knitting supplies I would still encourage them to come to the meeting,” Chittum said.
She also said the club is looking to participate in the Orphan Foundation of America’s Red Scarf Project (http://orphan.org/index.php?id=40). Students would knit scarves out of any red yarn and donate them to be sent to college-aged foster kids.
“I thought that’d be a good thing for Knitting Club to do because it would give us a mission and a purpose,” Chittum said. “Knitting is just so easy so anyone could do it. I just want them to get involved.”
