Would you like to knit a lovely shawl for a hospital in Ethiopia? Join us in the upstairs Conference Room on Tuesday evenings for a knit-a-long. The pattern and yarn will be available. Bring size 13 or size 15 needles. You need to know how to knit and purl but someone will be on hand to help you. All levels from novice knitters to experts are welcome. The yarn was donated by Jan Paul, owner of the Heath Hen Yarn and Quilt Shop, Vineyard Haven.
The shawl pattern is also available at the library, free of charge. Just ask at the main Circulation Desk. This knitting for charity project was inspired by the PBS documentary "A Walk to Beautiful."
The knitting group will meet for 6 Tuesday evening from June 12 through July 17 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm. Join us for friendly a evening. Your shawl will help a woman in Africa feel beautiful again.
