Great Yarns Knitting & Crochet

Big smiles on everyone's faces this week as we've all learned the magic of knitting. A huge accomplishment, as many of our knitters were complete novices when the club started 4 weeks ago. Everyone completed their buttoned wrist bands and they look amazing. Well done!

Great Yarns Knitting and Crochet Club was a "great yarn" and lots of fun was had by all.

Experienced knitters and absolute beginners got together for a thoroughly enjoyable session of knitting and nattering.

Our first project was to make a wristband, decorated with a button. To do this we needed to cast-on 5 stitches and knit in garter stitch until we had a knitted strip long enough to fit around the wrist. After casting-off we sewed the ends together and then sewed on a bright, coloured button. Ta dah!
