Beginning and Refresher Knitting

Have you tried knitting but usually run into problems that stop in you in your tracks?

Take these classes and gain a clear understanding of what really goes on with those stitches when you wave your needles in the air!
We’ll cover the basic stitches and learn to recognize them and how they slant, then manipulate them, count them, drop them and pick them back up again. You will be in control!

We’ll talk gauge, cast ons and the most important thing—recognizing what went wrong so that you can fix it!
Increases, decreases, seams, the basics of cables and lace, will also be on the menu for any hungry knitters in the group.
