Between popular yarn bloggers and social media sites, it seems like the ancient craft of knitting is as trendy as ever.

Want to get in on the action? At our Knit & Lit club, we can teach you the basics of knitting and crocheting on the first Saturday of every month. Intermediate and experienced crafters can meet and discuss techniques or what they've been reading any Saturday at Georgetown between 3 p.m. and 4:40 pm.
