It’s Winter again and time for a warm new hobby. How
about knitting! People have been wearing hand-knitted garments for
around a thousand years! And it’s still a useful, practical and
rewarding skill and style.
The first hurdle is to learn
some beginner stitches. Even if your knitting journey starts and ends
with these beginner stitches, you’ll have a rewarding knitting time. If
you develop these skills well, we’ll move on and show you how to cast on
and cast off (start and end the knitting project).
class is for absolute beginners! So whether you are brand new to
knitting, or need to shake the dust off those needles, Andrea will have
you knitting in no time.
