October

Socktober Sock Classes

Dates: Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in October (call the shop for specific dates and times)
Teacher: Holly

Cost: $20 per session

Help us celebrate Socktober by learning to knit your own fabulous socks! We’ll knit a pair of basic socks, one at a time on two circular needles in small sessions. We'll have three people to a session, including the instructor.

Time slots will be available, so you can choose what works best for you. If you're completely new to socks, you may want three sessions: 1) cast on and leg, 2) gusset and heal, and 3) toe decreases and grafting. If you need help in only one or two areas, sign up for one or two sessions. If you don’t see a time that works for you, please let us know. We’ll do our best to work with you.

    Beginning Knitting

    Date: November 19, 10:30-12:30
    Teacher: Holly
    Cost: $45
    Skills Required: Tenacity and a willingness to learn

    You may have heard me say it, but I often tell people learning to knit has more to do with tenacity than talent. While learning, I was frustrated and ready to quit many times but somehow determined not to let 'it' win. Years later, I'm so glad I saw it through. We’ll start with the basics: casting on, knitting, purling, and binding off. We'll be limiting class to eight, so if you're interested (or know of someone who may be), think about registering early.
