Is there a long summer stretching out ahead of you? Why not brush up on some knitting or crocheting skills while meeting a few new knitters? There are some fun new classes coming up this summer at UY, for beginners and intermediate, crochet or knit. We even have a kids class on Thursdays with the lovely Amanda, here are the details:
BEGINNER CROCHET CLASS
(With Deanna Krushinsky)
Learn the basics of crochet in this mini summer class. Some of you may want to use these techniques to start the ever so popular “Babette Blanket”.
(With Alison H)
Alison, an avid lace knitter, will teach you a number of beginner lace stitches, of progressive difficulty in this class. This is your opportunity to learn how to read charts if you wish, and walk away with a beautiful piece of wearable art, in the form of a Sampler Lace Scarf.
“THE KING KONG” OF SOCK
This super fun class will guide you through the making of the “King Kong” of Sock Monkey’s. In three sessions’ you will construct a larger than life sock monkey.
(With Amanda Kaffka)
This is a great class for kids ages 6 – 14 who have never knit before and want to learn and those who want to learn new skills! Amanda will teach either a simple garter stitch scarf, or more advanced fingerless gloves.
If your goal is to finish up a project or resurrect one that is a little stalled (and we all have a couple of those in the closet!) you can sign up for a Friday QnA or just give us a ring and Kathleen will be happy to schedule a private lesson.
Happy Canada Day!
