Beyond Beginner Knitting
New to knitting and wondering how to take your scarves, cowls and/or hats to the next level? Worried about making mistakes and not knowing how to recover from them? Just finished our beginner knitting series and not ready to jump into a sweater class? Want to tackle a new pattern, but unsure about some of the techniques? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then this class is for you! Bring your own pattern to figure out in class or choose to make Churchmouse's Ferryboat Mitts or Acclerating Stripes Fingerless gloves. Along the way, we will explore common knitting mishaps and how to find the information to help you out the most common knitting binds.
