Doggin' Knit this Sunday

Doggin' Knit 
Beginner's Knitting Circle 
Sunday, August 31st, 11:00am-12:00pm

Come by WAG this Sunday to learn some of the essential lessons for new knitters: choosing supplies, casting on, knitting. The fall season is quickly approaching, and this would be a great little hobby to hone.  WAG employee, Abbie will be sharing her "purls" of wisdom as she teaches you how to knit a scarf or dishcloth.

 Please bring your own supplies: You'll need (1) knitting needles, size U.S. 7 or 8/ 4.5mm or 5.0mm (approximately $5) and (2) Yarn (see next paragraph). 

 If you'd like to begin with a dishcloth, you'll need 100% cotton yarn. I like Bernat Handicrafter Cotton (50 g./1.75 oz. or 73 m/80 yds). If you'd prefer to begin with a scarf, you'll need a "light worsted" or "worsted/afghan/aran" weight yarn. 

 The total cost of supplies should be no more than $10. You can find items at Michael's, though, we would encourage you to shop local and check out Yarn Forward in the Glebe (581 Bank Street).

This event is free, but we would encourage calling to register a space (613) 730-4647.  As always, friendly dogs are welcome!

Please consider buying a drink to support future events/seminars/breed nights in our cafe.
