Join the Needle Crafters

Diana Oleson

Happy Fourth of July!

In May’s Spry Living there was an article titled “Knit Away Anxiety.” It stated that knitting is therapeutic because of the repetitive movements, which is relaxing. Some research has shown that online global sales of knitting and crocheting kits increased by more than 75% at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic.

The point is, if you need to relax, come join the Needle Crafters on Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Creative Arts Center. Be sure to wear a mask when attending.

I am taking an online course on how to knit socks and it is going better than I thought it would. I learned to do a magic loop with circular knitting needles, and I am almost done with the cuff.

My tip for this month is to use small golf tees to hold your bobbin thread to the spool of thread.
