Knit or Knot is the name of a group of GPC folks who meet at someone’s home on a regular basis to knit or crochet, chat and enjoy light refreshments.
Meetings are from 7 – 8:30 on the third Thursdays of the month. We gather to make items to be given to those who might need or enjoy them. Our focus over the years has been to make blankets (36″x54”) out of rectangles (6”x9”). Using a variety of colors and patterns for each rectangle assures that each blanket is unique. Some members of our group are able to add borders to the blankets after the rectangles have been stitched together. The blankets have been given to the girls who live at Presbyterian Village. One was given to our beloved member Betty Reeves’ great granddaughter.
While some members aren’t able to attend our meetings, they have contributed numerous rectangles for the blankets and colorful hats. All the items are made with washable wool for easy care. In addition, some of us have made scarves, a shawl, hats and socks for family members and friends. One of us enjoys knitting wash cloths that are given to some of the women at Project Home in Philadelphia.
We laugh at stories about ourselves, remember earlier days at GPC and talk about books, movies and coming events at church and in the community.
No experience is needed to join us. We have some who have learned to knit with us and many able, patient teachers. Some need to watch every stitch and others are able to knit, talk, teach and snack at the same time!
While we don’t yet have any male members, we look forward to welcoming men and women and children accompanied by an adult.
We welcome GPC folks and their friends and neighbors. If you don’t want to knit, you do “knot” have to; we welcome all who enjoy good fellowship.
