Hello everyone, it’s Cosmo, the library cat. Now that it’s wintry and cold outside, I think it’s a perfect time for you humans to do more things with yarn! That gives you something to do inside and gives cats like me the opportunity to chase this yarn – um! – I think…. to help you with your project. When you’re done, you’ll have cool things to keep you and your loved ones warm and warm. It’s a win-win situation!
The Grand County Public Library has many resources for adults and children interested in knitting and crocheting. If you’ve never knitted or crocheted before, we have books like “Crochet 101: A Workshop in a Book” by Deborah Burger in the adult section of the library and “Usborne Art Ideas: How to Knit” by Fiona Watt in the nursery.
If you are looking for patterns and ideas, we have a large selection: books like “The Joy of Sox” by Linda Kopp or how about “Crochet Wizardry: The Official Harry Potter Crochet Pattern Book” by Lee Sartori. There’s even an over-knit sweater for dogs! As you learn better by watching videos, you can check out knitting and crochet tutorials and projects online at CreativeBug, a super cute collection of educational crafting and crafting videos accessible for free with your Grand County Library account. Just go to www.catalog.moablibrary.org, type in CreativeBug (all one word), then search for terms like yarn, knitting, crochet, or any type of craft you like.
So go ahead, get yourself a bunch of yarn and get to work! The cats in your life will thank you.
