Happy New Year everyone! The first couple weeks of this fresh year have gone by in a flurry, and I’m still trying to catch up! Here’s a look at some of our most-immediately-upcoming classes!
Our Crochet I class runs the next two Wednesday nights (Wednesday January 22nd and 29th) – learn how to make this dishcloth, in either solid or striped versions! Monica will show you some crocheting basics with a focus on building your pattern-reading skills! (the pattern is free from Ravelry here!) And Crochet II is scheduled for February 19th and 26th!
Our Absolute Beginner Knitting class is also beginning this week, starting this Thursday (January 23rd) and concluding next Thursday (January 24th). If you have a friend who’s always bugging you to teach them how to knit, just send them on down to me! I cover casting-on, knitting, purling, and binding-off, as well as basic pattern reading skills!
On Friday, January 24th, I’ll be teaching Intro to Stranded Colourwork, a re-run from the fall for all of you still harbouring stranded colourwork mitten dreams…
Intro to Stranded Colourwork is also excellent prep for the return of Glenna‘s Steeks Don’t Scare Me! class, scheduled for Saturday, February 1st! Steeking – where you cut your knitting on purpose – is an intimidating technique but adds unparalleled versatility to your stranded knitting. Want a fair isle cardigan? Knit the sweater in the round, and then steek it up the front! Glenna covers all of the required info for stabilizing edges and finishing techniques, a rare and unique opportunity that you won’t want to miss! There is homework for this class, so sign up early!
Glenna will also be teaching her popular Knit Your Best Sweater class on Saturday, February 1st, examining all aspects of sweater fit, pattern choice, yarn selection, and all of the tips and tricks you can only get from an experienced sweater knitter and pattern designer. If a sweater is a challenge you’ve been planning to tackle, or if your previous sweater attempts have been a little lackluster, this is the class for you!

So I guess I’ll be seeing you all next weekend? ;)
