Basics of Knitting

(This is a two-part class, Thursday 10/11 & 10/18)

This is a true beginner class!  If you think you’ve caught the knitting bug, then this class is for you!  We will cover the very basics of choosing yarn and needles, casting on, the knit stitch and the purl stitch, starting/finishing a row, and other basic questions.  The atmosphere will be helpful and no pressure!  Mistakes are welcome and important for learning…so there are no dumb mistakes!  Come early to choose some yarn and supplies if you don’t have them.  (6 people max; supplies not included)

Painting with Yarn: How to "Doodle" Your Way to a Shawl

Back by popular demand!!! Let your inner creative out, or fake it until you make it (the shawl, that is)! Learn this easy way to start a shawl and add to it with short rows that let you “paint” with the colors of your yarn. The result will be curved rows of knitting, deliberate pools of color, and a beautiful one-of-a-kind creation that you’ve made. We’ll start the shawl shape and learn the “doodle knitting” technique you can easily use to create the rest of the shawl in free form. If you’re good at the knit stitch, you can do this!  (8 people max; supplies not included)
