We have a very full schedule of classes coming up this winter! January is full of mitten classes: Michelle’s easy, Chunky Fingerless Mitts project class is a perfect next step for a beginner who has perhaps knit a scarf and a hat and might like some mitts to go with them. Sherri’s Polar Vortex Mittens class will have you making toasty-warm, fleece-lined mittens that are also quite accessible for experienced beginners. Mairi’s Twined Mittens course is a more advanced class (suitable for confident intermediate knitters) that will teach you pretty much everything about Swedish tvåändsstickning (twined knitting) and general mitten architecture.
We are also very excited to start offering spinning classes. Sherri’s Learn to Spindle Spin class is a great way to start for beginners with no previous spinning experience. In March, and not just for spinners, Sherri is teaching us all how to Become a Yarn Sommelier – an understanding of yarn structure and fibre characteristics will help you with yarn substitutions and design understanding even if you’re not planning to spin.
For those of you who have been wanting more project classes, Michelle’s Cabled Vest class will be very popular. Michelle has a particular genius for designing dramatic, stylish garments that are really easy to knit. Whether this is your first garment project, or just the nicest one you’ve seen recently, we think you’ll enjoy this class. And just a little later, there’s Mary Pat’s Moebius Knitting class – dramatic, fun, and just a little bit different, like we always expect from Mary Pat.
Some of our more popular classes are also returning for the winter session: Finishing, Ravelry 101, and Toe-Up Socks on Two Circulars, all with Trish, and Knitting Set-in Sleeves from the Top Down with Mary Pat.
So, pick your favourite class, and call the store now to reserve a spot!
