Eeek, A Steek! – January 20th & 27th, 6-8p.m.
That’s right – we’re going to be cutting our knitting open! In this steeking class, you will learn how to do colorwork, knit in the round and, of course, cut your knitting open to make the button band. This is a great technique to learn, and with a small project like a coffee cozy, it shouldn’t be quite so scary. Class is $25 plus supplies. Supplies needed, size 6 16″ circular or dpn’s, 100% wool in 5 colors. Sign up here.
Sock Class – February 10, 17th and 24th, 6-8p.m.
This is a traditional sock class, taught using 4 needles. You will learn all the basics of sock construction, and hopefully turn into a sock knitter! Socks are great, portable small projects, and everyone wears socks, so you’ll be sure to find plenty of people to knit for. Class is $30 plus supplies. Supplies needed are size 2 double pointed needles and sock yarn (purchased at Main St. Yarn Shop). Sign up here.
Classes are non-refundable unless cancelled by Main St. Yarn Shop. You may use your own needles, but all yarn MUST be purchased at Main St. Yarn Shop for the class you are taking (not a prior purchase). Supplies must be purchased prior to the first class.
