Junior Madison Stanton holds a dishcloth she knit and donated last year during Knitting Club. The club takes on multiple service projects throughout the year such as making lap blankets for nursing homes and scarves for the Special Olympics.

Knitting Club met for an organizational meeting on Sept. 12 during PRIDE Time.  

Students signed up with their name and email so they could be added to a Knitting Club Canvas page, as well as giving the sponsors, instructors Lisa Renz and Kelly Ackerman, contact information for members. Members also received a calendar with the dates of all Knitting Club meetings that will be held this year. 

Knitting Club will meet the first and third Mondays of the month after school from 3:154:15 p.m., and the second and fourth Thursdays of the month during PRIDE Time, provided there are not activities conflicting with those times.  

All meetings will be held in Room 103. 

No experience is required, and the sponsors can help members with both knitting and crochet projects.  

“Just come when you can,” Ackerman said. “We won’t be taking attendance. This is just a club for you to build your knitting skills and to get help if you’re stuck.” 

Throughout the year, Knitting Club will take on different service projects, such as making scarves for the Winter Special Olympics and making lap blankets for nursing homes.  

“If you are donating your item, we will provide you with the yarn,” Renz said. “If you have a project that you’d like to keep, you have to provide the yarn.” 

Knitting Club will hold its next meeting on Sept. 16 after school.
