All Class Follow Up

Have a project from a prior class you need help finishing up? This workshop provides support to get you back on track. There is no charge, but pre-registration is required, as space is limited.

Log Cabin Mitts

March 7 & 14 (Wednesdays)
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7pm
$20 + materials

This project is perfect for relatively new knitters–while it primarily uses the knit stitch, you’ll learn some basic techniques of modular knitting–including the pick-up-and-knit technique that is used in many sock patterns. You’ll also learn the three needle bind off, and get the tiniest of introductions to seaming pieces together. If you’ve considered the Log Cabin Afghan, this project lets you sample the basic construction.

Brioche Scarf [FULL]

March 21 & 28 (Wednesdays)
Instructor: Ann Miner
5-7pm
$20 + materials

We’ll be using my Brioche Frenzy scarf pattern to learn basic brioche rib, along with built-in i-cord edging, and an i-cord cast on and cast off. We’ll also look at how to fix a dropped stitch, and how to tink brioche.

    I’d like to sign up for the Continental Knitting class on Fri. 9/23/16. Is there still a seat available? What do I need to bring

  2. Ann

    Hi Lois–
    Yes, space available. All you need is some medium-weight yarn and needles to knit with! Preferably light-colored. Sorry I didn’t see this until this afternoon!

    I attended the previous Mindful Swatching class, mostly because I thought I should…”there might be something useful”… Wow, I was completely impressed (and humbled) by how much I learned. The skills will be really helpful in my mission to step up my knitting game, and save me from a lot of false starts. Thank you Ann!

    I’m glad it was useful, Terri! Swatching really doesn’t have to be a chore!
