SUMMER 2009 Classes

Beginner’s Knitting- For the summer; we will be offering a quick start beginner’s class, to get you all knitting on those long, lazy vacation days. This will be a three session class, and while not as exhaustive as our six week series, will offer all of the basics: Cast on, Knit, Purl, Bind off, and other tips such as how to add in new skeins. The project will be a sampler scarf to knit while you learn. See class handout for supplies list. You will be required to buy your own yarn and needles. Worried that you can’t make all three classes? The class will be offered over four Saturdays. Pick your three sessions of the four.
(3) 1 hour sessions $45 - Saturdays, June 20, June 27, July 11, 18 (No Class on July 4) 10AM

EZ Baby Surprise Basics- The Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket continues to be a phenomenon. While the jacket is easy and fun, knitters frequently approach it with trepidation. This class will ease your fears. We will cover all of the techniques required to knit it, and discuss the design of the jacket. When you leave this class, you will have a firm grasp of the concept, and be on your way to completion. Pattern and yarn purchase required. Students must know basic knitting techniques.
(2) 2 hour sessions $50 - Tuesdays, July 7, 14 7PM

How to Design Your Own Scarves and Wraps
- There are so many times when we see and gorgeous yarn that we simply must have. But what should we do with it? Never again turn away from a beautiful yarn with a sob in your throat because you can’t find a pattern. (Of course, that doesn’t stop us “yarn collectors”!) In this class, we will discuss characteristics of different fibers, how to swatch effectively, sources for pattern stitches, how to determine how many stitches to cast on, and hints for a nicer looking scarf or rectangular wrap. Bring your yarn of choice, and see class handout for supplies list. Students must know basic knitting techniques.
(1) 2 hour session $30 - Sunday June 28 11AM

Top Down Sweaters
- Do you need a fast, easy baby sweater in your repertoire for all of those family and friends who are having babies? This sweater class will fill the bill. Once you have learned the basics of top down, you can continue on to make sweaters for the whole family. We will be making a top down baby sweater for approx. 6mos to 1 year. Because most of the shaping is done in the beginning, this class will only meet for 2 sessions. Once you are at the underarm portion, you will be able to sail through the body. The best part: no sewing together! We will work from a pattern that is provided in the class. You pick your own yarn. See class homework sheet for details. Students must know knit and purl. Some garment experience is strongly recommended.
(2) 2 hour sessions, $50 - Fridays, July 11, 18 1PM

Help Desk
- Do you feel “in over your head” with a project? We will be offering a help class each week. Bring in your knitting to learn how to fix whatever problem you may have, or to learn how to perform a technique required in a pattern. This is more intensive than just asking a quick question. So, pull out that UFO get re-inspired! Remember, your most important knitting tool is your brain!
(1) hour sessions, $20 appointment necessary - Thursdays, 1PM

- Socks are addictive! Find out what all the fuss is about. Learn how to knit a basic sock, top down with a short row heel. As before, class will be offered over 4 days.

Worried that you can’t make all three classes? The class will be offered over four Fridays. Pick your three sessions of the four.
