1) When it comes to fiber arts, I love the meditative process of knitting. My mom, who used to own a yarn shop, is primarily a knitter as well, but she knows that a basic knowledge of crochet helps round out the output of any fiber artist’s oeuvre. Me, I’ve never been able to pick up crochet, but I hold out hope that I’ll finally get it at the Beginners Crochet Class, 6:30 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. I’ll learn basic stitches, terms and tools while starting a wash-cloth project that will be finished at home. For registration, which is required, or information, call 812-379-1266 or mybcpl.org.
2) Do you have your tickets for Carnivale yet? I do. This rocking party comes once a year; this year, it’s set for 7 to 11 p.m. Feb. 21 at kidscommons, 309 Washington St. Tickets for the 21-and-older party are $75; for more information call 812-378-3046 or visit kidscommons.org.
