Here is one New Year's resolution you will want to keep..make 2013 the year you become a better knitter. And the best part....you can leave your sneakers at home!
Together, each month we will flex our knitting muscles and gain knitting strength every step of the way. If you want to take your knitting to the next level this series of classes is for you. Do words like charted, intarsia, entrelac, cables, 2-color stranded, magic loop make you break a sweat or simply flip the page to the next pattern? Do they keep you from knitting the things you really want to knit? Together, each month we will tackle a new technique and work a small but fun project that highlights the technique. You will learn to sail through, ssk's, yo's, tbl's, wyif, 2x2 cable, like a champ and have fun in the process.
Come to 1 class or join us each month!
Knitting Boot Camp will take place on the last Tuesday and Saturday of each month 10 - 12pm (the same technique will be covered on both dates so pick whichever works best for you.
Time: 10-12 pm
Cost: $30 per class (sign up for 3 for $25 per class)
