December 5th...

We are sharing books about yarn! This year the Lansdowne Public Library is participating in Warm Up America by crocheting or knitting squares. We will sew the squares together to be donated to help keep someone warm.

We invite any and knitters, crocheters and crafters to join us Sunday December 19th for the event.If you can't make it stop by the library and pick up some yarn and the pattern and complete a square.

Here are some yarn things to get you in the mood!

Grandma's yarn written by Lynne Pickavance, illustrated by Rory Tyger.
"As Grandma sleeps, her two favorite kittens have fun with her knitting yarn. A delightful story, with a length of knitting yarn weaving its way across the charmingly illustrated pages".
Other books we like:
Knitting Nell  by Julie Jersild Roth.
Everywhere Nell goes, she works on her knitting, quietly observing life around her, until one day she enters one of her creations in the county fair, and receives rewards beyond her dreams.
Need some help learning how to knit or crochet?
We have a plethora of resources!
Staff commented that they learned using The complete idiot's guide to knitting and crocheting by Gail Diven and Cindy Kitchel.

Have a ball!
