Third Graders: Learn to Knit? Why ‘Knot’! This year marks 11 years of service for the Westwood-Bales’ Knitting Club! We will begin meeting on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013. We meet on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 8:00 in the library (Westwood side) with volunteers, 4th and 5th grade mentors, and our sponsor, Ms. Sandra Miller. You will learn to knit squares to create caps for children in need. Last year our hats went to the Pregnancy Center here in Friendswood. Two years ago, our hats went to a local hospital and to Africa! Come help us decide where to send them this year! You will need your own knitting needles, size 8 SHORT (about 10 inches in length), which are available at craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, and JoAnn’s. Please turn in your signed permission slip to Mrs. Hees’ at the entrance of Westwood by Friday, Sept. 20th. Bring your knitting needles on the 24th in a gallon-sized bag with your name and teacher’s name on the bag. Our knitting volunteers will do your first cast on stitches and have your needles ready for the following week. We do have a few donated needles for anyone that cannot afford to purchase them; please leave a note with Mrs. Hees for Ms. Miller, if you need assistance. Needles can run from about $4 to $8 dollars. Please do not purchase any yarn, as we have plenty through generous donations. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Yes, my child, ___________________________, would like to join the knitting club.
