Knowledge Exchange – Fridays all year –Join us for this knitting, crocheting, and conversation group. The group meets in the Earl Elliott Meeting Room from 2:30-4:30 PM. Bring your own projects or use our yarn to make lap blankets for veterans at the V.A. Hospital and chemo caps for M.D. Anderson patients. 

We also continue to knit or crochet 8" squares in any pattern.They will be used for children who are HIV positive overseas. When we send blankets they get stolen at customs, but the squares will get through and the women in the country can sew them together to make an afghan. This is a great project for beginners.  Please bring your own hook or needles.  Come and join the fun.
