Joining a knitting club can help you make new friends or catch up with friends you’ve already made and strengthen those bonds. Knitting has always been a social craft that lets you chat away while you craft your next scarf or a pair of socks. It’s always good to stay in practice. Not only will you have ample opportunities to practice your needlework you may find new ideas for your next project. Members frequently trade knitting patterns or techniques and get inspired by each others’ projects.

The abstract game of Qwirkle consists of 108 wooden blocks with six different shapes in six different colors. There is no board, players simply use an available flat surface.
Players begin the game with six blocks. The start player places blocks of a single matching attribute (color or shape but not both) on the table. Thereafter, a player adds blocks adjacent to at least one previously played block. The blocks must all be played in a line and match, without duplicates, either the color or shape of the previous block.
