Girls try their hands at finger knitting in Libertyville
About a dozen girls in grades 3-5 participated in a finger-knitting program at Cook Park Library in Libertyville Tuesday, Feb. 3.
The program is basically an introduction to knitting as the girls wove yarn through their fingers to create woven designs.
"Knitting has definitely come back especially for young girls," said Cook Park Children's librarian Diane Trinkleback. "It's not just for older people any more."
Trinkleback sees the program as a way to promote creativity with young girls. "It's a nice way to pass the time," Trinkleback said.
