  • *NEW Continuing the Knitting Journey

    In this class we will tackle techniques and skills that are helpful on your knitting journey. We will cover learning to "read" your knitting, picking up dropped stitches, tinking, frogging, gauge, gauge swatch, cable cast on, e-wrap cast on, and different ways to close up the top of a hat, which includes using double pointed needles and magic loop. We also will touch on making cables, seaming and blocking. Supplies needed for this class are two size 8 circular needles: one 24" and one 32" (either fixed or tips and cords to make the lengths). Dreamz brand needles are recommended due to their flexible cords. Also needed is a set of size 8 wooden double pointed needles, a cable needle, darning needle, scissors, and a skein of lighter colored worsted weight yarn. If you have any questions about the supplies the instructor will arrive 15 minutes before the first class starts. You may purchase any supplies you need that night. Fee does not include the cost of supplies.
