Lessons and Workshops!

We had a meeting, my friend Gwen and I and we made some plans. (Gwen teaches knitting and is left handed!) We are going to offer 2 workshops, on Saturdays. (noon to 3 pm.)

October 24th we will do a workshop on 'knitting a round'. You will have the opportunity to learn the 3 main techniques of circular knitting, 4 needles, 2 circulars and magic loop. The shop will supply needles to use that day, but if you bring your own needles it would be helpful.

October 31st the workshop will be to help teach you how to fix your mistakes! Homework is required for this class, you will need to bring a swatch of knitting. (Instructions will be given when you register.)

These two workshops will be repeated again in November, cost of each is $30 (includes light refreshments!) sign up soon as space is limited. (We need 3 to fill the class and I run out of chairs after 6!)

Regular learn to knit sessions will be done on Wednesday mornings from 10:30 till noon and 'semi private' lessons can be arranged at almost any time, other than Saturdays! If we have enough requests for Saturday lessons we will arrange a class, minimum of 3 students.

I have been thinking about including a 'knit night' into the mix, once a month, every 2nd or 3rd Friday. ("Friday night knitting"...6 - 8:30..email me if you are interested!)
