Canberra :: Knitting

May 20, 2013

Hi Canberra owls!
May is nearly over, which means it is time for our next get together!!

The cooler weather, and maybe the yarn fumes from the Old Bus Depot
Market Celebration of Wool day yesterday, has us obsessed with all
things wooly – so this month we’ll be offering a learn to knit workshop!

If you’d like to join in all you need to do is let us know in the
comments, and bring along your own knitting needles and wool. For
beginners about size 4mm needles, and a nice smooth (not fuzzy) 8ply
(sometimes called DK) in a colour other than black is best – but if you
have something else at home already that will be fine too. If you don’t
have any supplies but want to try it out just let us know and we’ll try
to arrange for extras.

Of course, if knitting isn’t your thing that’s ok too! Just bring along
whatever you happen to be working on and join us for a chat and a cup of

We will be meeting on Saturday May 25, 2pm at the Downer Community Centre 

Please also remember to bring $5 for room hire, and something to share for arvo tea if you would like!

It would be wonderful if you could RSVP in the comments below so
that we know how many owls to expect – dont forget to tell us if you’d
like us to bring spare needles/wool!

Please let us know if you have any questions!

    I'll finally be able to make it to another Brown Owls. I'm still very much a beginner knitter :(
