Classes at The Knitting Garage in Fall 2014

Learn How to knit SOCKS

I decided to use the classic sock knitting pattern by "Churchmouse" for a beginners' sock knitting class. There will be a total of four sessions to cover all the different sections. Once you have learned to knit socks, there may be no stopping you to make pair after pair.

1) Nov.1. 1-3pm Learn to knit on double pointed needles and cast on your socks
2) Nov.15. 1-2:30pm Start the heel flap
3) Nov.22. 1-3:30pm Turn the heel and start the gussets
4) Dec 6. 1-3pm Toe decreases and Kitchener stitch
The fee of $120 is for all four sessions and includes the pattern.  I also offer the sessions individually at $35 each session.

Individual Projects
This is the Season when you want to think about starting small projects for gift giving.  The classes are held Saturday mornings and on the following Wednesday mornings (except on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving).
In my classes I will set you up with various projects.  All classes will be held from 10am-12 noon at a $40 fee which includes any patterns. 
Here is the list for the next four weeks:
Nov. 1. , Nov. 5. Simple Hat (Beginner Class, you need to know basic cast-on and knit stitch)
