Kitchener Knitting Group November 20, 2017

151 Frederick Street, 4th Floor Boardroom, Kitchener, ON

The Knit and Knatter, a group of knitters, meet every week at the CNIB Kitchener Centre to socialize and make creations out of yarn.  Beginner knitters learn with the help of CNIB volunteers and long-time knitters – some of whom have rediscovered their love of knitting after losing their sight.   The group lead has a guide dog so if you have dog allergies and wish to participate, please prepare yourself accordingly.
