classes in January and February

I’m not teaching at the Knit and Crochet Festival this year (I’ll be 8.5 months pregnant…), but I’m making up for it by offering these classes at the Wilkins School Community Center.

Beginning Knitting
Saturdays the 18th of January and 22nd of February, 9-10:30 – $40

Learn to knit for the first time or get a refresher course. In this class, you’ll not only learn the basics of knitting, but you’ll also come out well on your way to your first finished project! Choose between making simple fingerless mitts, a cute square hat, a short neckscarf. We’ll also discuss gauge and selection of needles and yarn. Register here with the WSCC online or by mail.

Beginning Spinning on a Drop Spindle
one class, Saturday February 22nd 10:30-12:30 – $25

Have a hankering to make your own beautiful yarn? In this class you will learn to spin on a spindle using the park and draft method. This class is mostly about getting yarn on your spindle, but I also cover plying and talk a bit about fiber. Register here with the WSCC online or by mail.

Sweater Workshop: Knit or Design a Baby Sweater
one class, includes support after the class is over via email, or in person if we can make it happen – $30
Saturday January 18th, 10:30-1:00 Class size limited to 6

Interested in knitting your first sweater? Or have you just not found the right pattern and want to figure out how to alter patterns or design your own? This class will focus on the top down raglan style of sweater. This is a super simple, seamless garment that can be easily altered with some basic math. After discussing the basics of how these sweaters are constructed, people can either choose to design their own or choose to follow a pattern. Register here online with the WSCC or by mail.
