Wanna Knit a Hat?

Hello TNS,

We’re going to try doing different knitting workshops at Family Time so parents and students can learn how to make specific things and use the time at other Family Time slots to work on them. Hat knitting is very easy and a very practical skill. Let me know if you have any questions.
