Classes


Saturday Beginning Knitting Class: This Class will meet every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month from 1 pm to 2 pm.  You will learn the basics of knitting: casting on, the knit stitch, and casting off. Plan to arrive at the shop a little early to purchase your supplies. You will make a cowl or scarf for your first project. This class is designed to repeat the basic skills so that you can attend as many times as you need so as to become more confident in your knitting life.
Dates: 1st and 3rd Saturdays of every month, from 1 pm to 2 pm. 
Cost: $10 per one hour session.
Materials: Approximately 80-90 yards of bulky or super bulky yarn and a set of corresponding needles.
Registration:  This is a walk-in class, no need to register ahead of time. But we always appreciate it if you are planning to come and can let us know ahead of time. 



   
Skills Development Class:  This class is a progressive class that will loosely follow the new Pom Pom book            "Knit How".  We will begin at the beginning of the book and work through the stages of building all the skill sets needed to become a proficient and confident knitter.  We will learn the basics and add new skills as we work through the book: knitting, purling, ribbing, knitting in the round, garment construction and other miscellaneous but essential techniques.  You can attend this class from the beginning if you are a brand new knitter or if you want to refresh your knitting skills. You can join at any intermediate stage if you possess the skills that we have already addressed and are looking to learn something new. We will provide a vague syllabus so that you can see what our goals are, and we will update the schedule as we go in keeping with the progress of the class.

Dates:  This class will meet the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 1 PM to 2 PM.  The first class will be held January 26th.

Cost: $10 per one hour session

Materials:  Purchase of the Pom Pom book "Knit How".  Materials will vary according to the techniques and projects as we work our way through the book.

Registration: This is a walk-in class that does not require pre-registration but due to the progressive nature of the material you will want to be in contact with the shop to see where we are and what the project is.  We will have the books available for purchase but may have to re-order if demand exceeds supply, so it would be helpful to let the shop know if you are interested so that we can make sure we have enough books.
