Intro to Knitting with Anj: Wednesday, July 10, 17 & 24, 6 pm – 7:30 pm, $85
This class is for the absolute beginner. The only requirement is that you want to learn.
Students will learn the basics of knitting. You will learn how to cast on, knit , purl, knit in the round using circular and double pointed needles, and do basic decreases. At the end you will (hopefully) have a basic ski cap.
The fee covers everything you need, except for two hands and your sense of adventure. Space is limited, call or stop in the store to register.
Beginner Socks with Kelly: Saturdays, July 28, August 4, 1 pm – 4:00 pm, $80
