On Monday, August 19 a new monthly gathering started at the DFL: Knit Night. Run by Karen Hahn, circulation assistant and passionate knitter, this group will meet the 3rd Monday of every month, 6:00- 8:00PM in the Resource Room for the foreseeable future.

I, for one, am the only knitter in my circle of family and friends, so it was great to be around people who also like talking about yarn and knitting patterns. Knitting is a great fit with the Makerspace initiative, even though it is not technology based, because it is people sharing their knowledge of this particular skill and making something from scratch. But I am interested in the melding of technology and crafts, especially light up clothing! Maybe that will be a Makerspace project in the future.
If you are a knitter, or any type of fiber artist, come and join us! Are there other crafting groups that you would like to see at the Duxbury Free Library?
And if you're interested, listen to Karen and me talk about knitting on this podcast episode of The Diffle Presents: The Diffle Presents: Episode 6, The Lowdown on Knitting
