The Fireside Knitters meet weekly for good conversation, fun, and knitting for a cause.  Tonight the group is going to put the final additions on afghan blankets they have been working on.  Placing stars on the blankets is the final step before sending them to the Wounded Warrior Project.  The group will begin placing the stars on the blankets tonight, Tuesday, October 04 at 6:30 p.m. at the Fairmount Branch Library.

Fireside Knitters has met in front of the fireplace at the Fairmount Branch Library since the library opened in 2006.  During this time, the knitters have worked hard on providing for others while enjoying camaraderie amongst a group that anyone can become a part.  The group has supplies or you can bring your own.  You don’t even have to know how to knit.  There are plenty of people at the fireplace on Tuesday nights that are willing to help you get started and show you all of the steps into becoming a professional knitter.
