We are hosting two more workshops with local knitwear designer and talented teacher Kira K.!

Knitting with Beads: Sunday, January 13th, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. $30

Beads can add incredible texture to your knitting, and there are many different methods to explore.  Kira will show you how to do a simple beaded cast-on, then four different ways of placing the beads on your knitting (and making sure they show on the correct side).  We’ll also talk about how to add beads to almost any existing knitting pattern. Come explore this fascinating technique.

Supplies: Bring knitting needles in size 4-6 and $10 cash or check for materials fee. Yarn, beads, beading needles and crochet hook are included in materials fee.

 

Fixing Mistakes: Sunday, January 13th, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. $30

Dropping stitches and finding mystery holes in your knitting can be scary. In this class we’ll go over how to fix many common mistakes on the following row, as well as how to safely undo a few stitches and many rows when you have to. You’ll learn how to recognize mistakes and many tips on how to avoid them in the first place.

Materials: 50 yards smooth worsted or aran weight yarn, knitting needles in a size appropriate for your yarn, circular knitting needles 5 or more sizes smaller than your main needles, crochet hook in a size appropriate for your yarn.
