Knitting 101: Day 1 of 2
November 10 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM$76
Two Wednesdays: November 10 & 17, 2021: 5:30 – 8 PM. Your $76 class fee covers both dates!
This class is not for everyone — only BEGINNERS! If you have never held knitting needles or haven’t in many years, now is the time to jump on the knitting bandwagon and join the fun. All you need for this class is 3 Hershey’s Kisses (or comparable treats), a pair of scissors and your positive attitudes.
You will learn to “speak” knitting lingo and terms like cast-on, knit, purl, stockinette stitch, garter stitch and bind-off will be rolling off your tongue as these techniques transform into a scarf. Your class fee includes two sessions, detailed instructions with illustrations, needles, yarns (one for practice and another yarn for the scarf) and a pattern for the Sampler Scarf. The first week you will learn the basics and take home yarn to use for practice. Yes, there is homework! At the second session you will choose the yarn for your scarf and off you will go knitting a scarf or a cowl if you want a shorter accessory.
Don’t fret if you feel two sessions won’t be adequate; Knit Night is held every Tuesday from 4:30 – 6:30 PM and one of us is always there and happy to help. If you don’t care for the yarn included with the cost of the class, The Fiber Store has dozens of appropriate yarns for sale.
