Sweater and Sock Classes

May 16, 2017

We’ve got two upcoming evening classes that currently have some spots available. Classes are a great way to improve your skills, while meeting others in the community who share an avid interest in knitting or crochet.

Now is the perfect time to learn how to knit a bottom-up sweater that incorporates both a colour work yoke and uses short row shaping to create a stylish asymmetrical hemline. Don’t worry if you’ve never done colour work or worked short rows before. Megan will  be covering both techniques during the 4 sessions of our Spotlight Colourwork Sweater Class that begins Thursday, May 25. We suggest making the 6-12 month size in order to keep up with homework. If you wish to make a larger size, you must be prepared for more knitting between classes.

Self-patterning sock yarn is so much fun and highly addictive to knit up! Marilyn’s sock class – top-down (cuff-to-toe) on double-pointed knitting needles will get you started or is a great refresher if you haven’t made socks in awhile.  During this three-class workshop that runs on Mondays, June 12, 19 and 26,  you’ll be creating a mini sample size practice sock using the traditional method with a heel flap/gusset heel and basic toe shaping.

Please visit the Summer 2017 classes section of our website for more information about these and our other knitting and crochet  classes. Some of our classes are full or near full, so we recommend that you call us regarding spot availability and class fees before venturing in to register.
