Knitting Hangout

I will teach you to knit mittens and socks, must be able to cast on, cast off, knit and purl comfortably, with little or no
support, must be able to rib, and fix basic ‘tangles’ with little or no support, some comfort level with knitting in the round is recommended, but not required.

Teens and adults are welcome in this informal class at an intermediate skill level.
According to interest and ability, participants may make hats, mittens, and/or socks.
Depending on interest, skill level, and numbers in the class, more advanced knitters may explore traditional Fair Isle color patterns, cables, or lace patterns.
Join us to explore the creative, practical, cognitive, social, therapeutic, and meditative quality of this ancient art enjoying new found popularity, ideal in this unprecedented time!
All materials and a selection of patterns will be supplied for the first project (a hat or baby socks); larger projects will require you to select and purchase your own materials.
Knitting is often used in therapeutic settings to combat feelings of isolation, anxiety, and restlessness. An ideal activity at this time!
Elizabeth has been teaching traditional handwork skills for over 35 years, and has recently published her first book “Teaching Through Stories: Jane and Jeremy Learn to Knit”
