NEW TECHNIQUES CLASSES

Fundamentals of Knitting

$25/session

This series of classes will take us back to just beyond the basics.  There will be a total of 6 sessions over the first quarter of the year.  There will be a small amount of homework for each session.  This is great for the beginner who knows how to knit and purl, or the more experienced knitter who wants to learn/perfect some techniques.  Here is a description of Sessions 2-6.  (Session 1 is full.)

 

 

Session 2    "Add and Subtract"

    We will explore the ways to increase and decrease the number of stitches you have on your needles.

Date: Tuesday, January 29

Time: 10:30 AM

 

Session 3    "Fix It!"

    Yes, you have a mistake, or you dropped a stitch. It happens to all of us!  Come find out how to fix those things without having to rip out your project and start over.

Date: Tuesday, February 3

Time: 10:30 AM

 

Session 4     "Finishing"

Date: Tuesday, February 19

Time: 10:30 AM

 

Session 5    "Cables, Bobbles and Twists"
