Still out and about
Published May 9th 2015
Knit for fun, for love, or for charity
Knitting groups have traditionally provided a place for women to meet and interact with a social group outside that provided by their family or work - which can be encumbered with duty and responsibility. The knitting circle has acted as a place for women to vent, share, learn and come and go as they please while sharing a common goal - that of creating a knitted piece.

In our changing society, these knitting groups are now also places for men - as well as women - with a passion for knitting to be social.

Turn a ball of wool into something more

Aside from making some wonderful knitted pieces for yourself or for friends, you can join one of the many groups that knit for charity and who are often affiliated with Wrap with Love - a non-profit group that oversees the knitting of thousands of wraps for people in need, every year.

Knitting groups are very individual; some dedicated to charity and others being suitable for people who crochet as well as knitters. Always bring your own materials and needles and make sure you understand the focus of the particular group that you are joining.
