Skills Series

One Knit Wonders (3)

Yarn Del Sol!

Come experience an entirely new format for specialty classes with Martha!

Introducing: “One Knit Wonders”

In these one-hour sessions, class will be focused on learning a knitting “specialty”.

Some examples for classes will include unusual cast ons, bind offs, picking up stitches, increasing, decreasing and much more.

Sharpen your knitting skills by learning a new technique in every short but sweet session. The classes are stand-alone learning opportunities, so you may come to as many sessions as you wish in any order.

Homework or easy preparation at the beginning of class may be required.

Knitters of all levels are encouraged.

Cost per session: $10

Time: Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 p.m.

Supplies: Worsted weight yarn in a couple of light colors.

                  Size US 8 or 9 needles.

                  Stitch holders.

                  Tapestry needle.

                  Paper, pencil, scissors, stitch markers, etc.
