Knitting Circle meets at library to share yarns
Once a month, on the fourth Thursday between 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Parkland Community Library in South Whitehall welcomes knitters into the Knitting Circle to sit, talk and to knit or crochet.
The knitters share yarns about their projects, where they buy supplies, and other knitting tips or shortcuts.
They are a congenial group of women, who enjoy the company and conversation of others.
Kathryn Borbacs, who has been stopping by for seven years, is still knitting and enjoys meeting with the group.
The ladies discuss their projects, from socks to sweaters, to ponchos to hats and toys. They sometimes share patterns, and often discuss the local news.
Everyone, from beginner to expert knitter, is invited to come to the library, located along Walbert Avenue in South Whitehall, and join this amiable group.
