This is an informal class for beginner/newer knitters.

You will learn:

  • The basic knit stitch
  • How to get started by casting on stitches
  • How to finish it off (binding off)

At the end you will have small coaster sized square, and you will be able to knit simple scarves, afghans, and washcloths.

Yarn and needles are included in the price of the class.  During class we will talk about what project you would like to do next to apply your new skill, and what materials will be required.

There is a 10% discount on purchases on the day of class.

Cost: $15

Instructor: Carla Billingsley

Carla Billingsley rediscovered knitting shortly after her 40th birthday when she fell in love with handpainted and novelty yarns. At first she only made rectangles and triangles: scarves, throws, and shawls. Eventually she worked up the courage to try lace and socks. After learning to turn her first heel she realized that you can learn anything if you set your mind to it, and that learning is really easy if you can take a class with a good teacher. In 2014 she and her husband Curtis moved to Texas and in June 2015 they opened Quixotic Fibers. From the beginning, her vision for the shop was that it is not just a place to buy yarn and fiber, but that it should become a community resource dedicated to the preservation and development of the fiber arts, a place where knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can gather to learn from and to inspire each other.  Over the past 8 years she has developed her crochet skills and developed a love for that craft as well.   In 2024 Carla and Curtis returned to Florida, leaving the Texas store in Emilie's capable hands, and opened a little sister shop to the Texas store in Zephyrhills, Florida.
