December Classes

Holiday Class Schedule
at the Knitting Garage
December 2014

Do you realize that with Thanksgiving so late this year we are already on the homestretch with getting our knitted gifts done right after Thanksgiving?!
Below are three classes I will be giving to get you started on a quick-to-finish-project.

Individual Projects:

These classes are held twice once on Saturday morning 10am to 12 noon and on Wednesday of the same week from 11am to 1pm (dates are indicated).  The cost of $40 per class includes the pattern and any additional help needed to finish the project.  Prior sign-up is necessary for the class during the week on Wednesday and recommended for the Saturday classes, but additional walk-ins are welcome Saturdays with a maximum number of four students per class.

December 3rd and 6th Cabled Headband (for the beginner knitter; you need to know basic stitches)
My own pattern and a quick knit (you can make one in a day).  If you have never knitted cables before, you can learn how. There are 37 projects posted on ravelry alone which all use this pattern.  Check them out .

December 10th and 13th Spa Cloth (for the advanced beginner)
This is a very popular pattern for a beautiful Spa Cloth.  Once you have mastered the circular cast-on, you   will be able to make one of these in a few hours as there are only 26 rounds to knit and you are done.  Paired with a nice bar of soap, they make perfect gifts for anyone on your list ( think of your children’s teachers).

December 17th and 20nd Quick hat worked flat (for the beginner knitter; needs to know basic stitches)
Do you need a last minute, but special handmade gift?  This hat is knitted flat and shaped to seam together in the end; no need to learn to knit in the round for this hat.  This is also my own pattern.

Preview of classes in January: 

After all the knitting you are doing for everybody else, you may want to think about making something special for yourself.
I will start another sock-knitting class and will also continue with the individual project classes on Saturday mornings.  Treat yourself to learn something new and wear the yarn you have been eying for so long…..
A full schedule will be posted end of December.

A soft and warm cowl in two colors using Misti Alpaca


Fingerless mitts in Cascade Sport yarn


Pembroke Shawl using Misti Alpaca or other bulky yarn... ( a good project to learn lace stitches).
