Learn the basics of knitting and a little more.

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.

Each class could be 1 individual student up to 6 students max.  If there are more interested, that would need to be a seperate class.  Each class includes 2 actual in person sessions:  1 hour to start the project and another hour if you have more questions and to help with finishing the item.  Only class 4 includes three sessions.  You can do any combination of the classes that interest you.  If all classes are purchased together, there is a $50 discount included.

Price for each class includes costs of materials used.  Those supplies are yours to keep after the class, along with the items you make.

Classes will take place on Saturday mornings, unless your schedule prohibits.  Then we may be able to work out another time.
