Temperature Scarf 2017

Temperature Scarf 2017Try something new with us!  Join us in making a "temperature scarf!"  It will reflect the temperature outside for the entire year.  Consider using up all those small balls of yarn you have left from other projects, or produce a coordinated scarf.  You can use whatever needle size you wish and whatever color and texture of yarn.  It would be fun to have many different colors and textures of yarn.  You will need about 15 different yarns as the color of the scarf will change with every 5 degree temp. change.  Let's meet monthly on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 10am  for group knitting as we see our creations progress. Sign up now!  You will also need a notebook for the class in addition to yarn and needles.  Circular or straight needles will work.

Group leader:  Mary Ellen
Cost:  $20
2nd Wed. of each month

Time:  10 AM - 12 Noon
