Join the Norfolk knitters on Friday afternoons at their NEW meeting time - 3 to 4:45 p.m. at The Norfolk Library. The fire will be lit in the Great Hall, and needles, yarn, and patterns will be available, or you can bring your own.
This group of talented knitters donate their beautiful blankets, hats, scarves and mittens to The Gathering Place in Torrington for distribution to the homeless and to other people in need. The group welcomes gifts of yarn with which to make more of these much-needed items
And if you don't know how to knit, they will teach you! Everyone is welcome.
