2 Color Shawl Class Saturday February 25th @1PM
I knit continental, so that is what I teach. That means I hold the yarn in my left hand and "pick" the yarn rather than holding yarn in my right hand and "throwing". I can demonstrate "throwing" the yarn English style, but when I am knitting, it will be continental.
Masks are required for in-person meetings.
