Students at Sage Day Princeton are currently reading the book, The Witch of Blackbird Pond in English class. The story takes place in Connecticut in the year 1687. The book's main character, Kit, and most of the members of the community where she lives know how to knit. Knitting is used as a hobby to avoid monotony and to make clothes and blankets. As a project relating to the book, the students and staff participated in a knitting lesson presented by the school principal.
