Taylorsville, NC – The Alexander County Library is pleased to restart its “Sit & Knit” activities at the main branch in Taylorsville beginning this Thursday, November 18. The public is invited to join the fun and knit together every Thursday at 10:00 a.m.Sit And Knit

No experience is necessary, and no knitting needles are required. The main library has round looms available for knitting, and staff will teach a very simple (but quite attractive) hat pattern to anyone who would like to learn.

The library is taking donations of yarn as all the hats made during “Sit & Knit” will be donated to local organizations such as nursing homes, crisis centers, and more. Of course, if knitters bring their own yarn, they can keep their own creations.

“It’s a great opportunity to get help from experienced knitters, crochetiers, and others as we make hats and other items while enjoying a time of fellowship,” said Laura Crooks, Library Director. “Let’s knit together and help make our community a warmer place. Hats are just the beginning!”

There are multiple knitting looms and hooks available at the library, but needle knitters and folks who love to crochet are welcome to join the fun. Knitters can bring their own projects and share their knowledge with the group.
