This is an informal class for beginner/newer knitters that will focus on whatever skill or basic technique that you want to learn
Possibilities range from brand new beginner to more intermediate subjects like how to do cables or how to fix mistakes.
If you are interested, we will also work with you to set up a plan for your adventure in learning to knit, including helping you to plan projects that you will enjoy doing and will help you to develop your skills.
One hour is allotted for the class, but you are welcome to stay the rest of the afternoon to practice and to get additional help.
The instructor will be either Carla or Emilie.
For most classes you will knit a small square in order to practice the technique. Needles and yarn will be provided for use during the class. If you choose to purchase materials for a project after class, there is a 10% discount on the day of class.
