Knit Club 2021

Knit Club 2021 awaits! Beginning February 13th, and continuing each 2nd Saturday of the month for 6 months from 9-10:30 a.m.! Each session includes learning a new technique, receiving a pattern using that technique and enjoying the company of friends, new and old! Come create community and beautiful knits! We will start out virtually, and hope to meet in person soon!

July Knit Club

In our final Knit Club meeting of the season, we will work on the "Lacey Waves Scarf," which includes lots of fun and unusual increases and decreases, plus a bit of cabling. The scarf can be made out of cotton (such as Berroco Remix), or a variety of worsted wools. You are encouraged to take the "Increasy-Decreasy" class prior to making this project.

Sat July 17 from 9 to 10:30 am

There are only 2 basic stitches to learn: knitting and purling. Once you have the basics, a world of fabulous projects will be open to you! In week 1, you will learn how to "cast on" and knit basic stitches, while making a cotton dish cloth or a wool scarf. In week 2, learn how to correct simple mistakes, and delve into the world of pattern reading.

Baby Top Down Sweater

Here's your chance to learn everything you need to know about working a raglan sleeved top-down sweater while making this adorable baby cardigan (and who doesn't need a ready to go baby gift in their stash?).  Besides learning the raglan shaping, and various options for increases, we will also work on options for pattern stitches.  Once you have made this baby cardigan, you'll be ready to make one for yourself!

Felted Bag Class

Felting is a fun process through which you knit a piece loosely with NON superwash wool, then shrink it to a firm fabric.  You will have your choice of a smaller or larger bag ("My Little Companion" or "My Constant Companion") as we tackle the knitting process, and learn how to shrink it in Michele's Wonder Washer, or you own washing machine.

August 14th and August 21st, 3-5pm

Baby Surprise Jacket

Elizabeth Zimmerman, a wizard with knitting math, came up with the Baby Surprise Jacket in the late 1960's.  Made in simple garter stitch with options for stripes, the construction of this cardigan is really unusual.  Over the years, the basic idea has been expanded (mostly by her grandson, Cully Swanson), and can now be made in children and adult sizes, with options for shaping, neckbands, tapered sleeves, and more. It is recommended that you make a baby size first to get a handle on the odd construction, then you will be ready for your own jacket.  Slow striping yarn, with an addition of a solid color or two, are particularly gorgeous!  In the class, we will get a good start on the baby jacket, and work through the math for your adult size.
