CHESTER – When Anne Winslow was age seven, her grandmother taught her how to knit. Now this Chester grandmother teaches children how to knit at the Chester Public Library on Saturday afternoons.

The group has been growing and the 100-year-old library can get crowded. So the Kids Knitting group decided to share the art and fun of knitting with their friends. They will hold a knitting event on Sunday, Feb. 28, from 12 to 2 p.m. at the Chester Museum at The Mill, during Chester’s “Always on Sunday” happenings.

The event is free and open to all. All children must have parental supervision. Assistance will be provided for new knitters. Beginner supplies will be available, or please bring your own.

This event also gives the Kids Knitting group a chance to spread the word about their Knitted Squares Blanket project. They are collecting their knitted squares to be sewn into a blanket, which they will donate to a charity.

For more information, call Chester Library at 860-526-0018 or visit Facebook.com/ChesterCTPublicLibrary.
