CLASSES Learn to knit classes are taught to very small groups or on an individual basis all year long. Instruction is offered when the shop is less busy and you have time to practice what is being taught. When you have graduated you will know how to cast on, knit and purl. The cost of this "class" is $25.
Socks are really fun to knit.

Feather and Fan Baby Blanket
A great pattern for a classic baby blanket and a wonderful way to launch out into following a pattern. This is perfect for a beginning knitter. We will learn how to figure out the dimensions of the blanket and make it to your specs! We will offer two complete classes, each an hour long. $15.
Wednesday, March 4 6:00 – 7:00
Saturday, February 21 1:00 – 2:00
This is a new pattern and we found it to be very forgiving. It is striking and uses only two balls of yarn. It is pretty much like knitting a rib scarf that just keeps moving. We can learn the basics of this scarf in no time but will need to start the ribbing on the end before the class begins. Then we can complete one whole pattern in about two hours. $20.
Class will meet once on Wednesday evening, March 11 from 6:00 to 8:00.
Self-Fringing Scarf (with or without - beads)
Knit in a sport weight yarn of at least 500 yards (Silk is great!) this shawl is simple and lovely. The self-fringing technique is a great way to show off the yarn. You will need 190 beads (6mm) to compliment your yarn. We will offer two complete classes, each will meet for one hour. Cost of class $15.
Saturday February 14, 1:00 to 2:00
Wednesday February 25, 6:00 to 7:00
Working with two circular needles we will make a pair of socks – hopefully, in four weeks. These are made from the top down with a ribbed cuff, flap heel and they will be beautiful. There are plenty of tricks to making a pair of socks but our students have been terrific. By the way, if you are reading this and took the class previously but did not have a chance to finish your socks, please join us. $35.
Class will meet for four weeks, on Saturday afternoons in March from 3:00 – 5:00 beginning March 7th
