Knit Happens! Drop-In at the DME

Do you want to learn how to knit? From librarians?  Of course you do!

On Mondays at 11 a.m., join Trina Grover, Collection Services Librarian, May Yan, ER Discovery & Access Librarian and Sally Wilson, Web Services Librarian, in the Library’s Digital Media Experience (DME) lab on the 3rd floor of the Student Learning Centre (SLC).  No registration needed, just drop in to work on your knit projects with fellow knitters, or learn some knitting basics from these crafty ladies. Everyone is welcome, regardless of their skill level.

Even if you’re an experienced knitter looking for a knitting community on campus or just somewhere to work, feel free to join the group. The knitting skills learned at this drop-in will help students progress to future workshops planned around knit-wearable projects and computational fabrics / wearable computing, which may be of interest to those with knitting experience.  

The Library’s Digital Media Experience (DME) Lab is a new space on the 3rd floor of the Student Learning Centre (SLC) designed to help all Ryerson students learn basic and advanced digital skill-sets, while exposing them to new and emerging technologies.

  1. Would love to attend! Agree that it is difficult to attend at 11 as well – perhaps something between 12-2 would allow more participants to attend.

  2. I love Knit Happens! It’s been a great way to revive a long-abandoned skill and interest. I look forward to the wearable computing part. ;^)
