ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - Knitters, brighten your winter! Learn about oceanic patterns and discover how to knit beautiful sideways edgings with lifelong knitter, Mary Ann McCormick, on Tuesday, January 10 at 7 PM at the Atlantic Highlands Library, 48 Avenue C, Atlantic Highlands.
A passion for knitting was shared with Mary Ann, who has been teaching throughout Monmouth County for the past four years, by her mother and other family friends. Another love, that of the ocean, led Ms. McCormick to seek out sea and marine life patterns to be able to share with her students. This class combines her two loves through her instruction on patterns from the sea.
Bring medium needles and yarn. This free class is designed for knitters who can comfortably knit and purl. For further information, please call the library at 732-291-1956. The snow date for the event will be: Tuesday, January 17 at 7 PM.
