Created to supplement Judy Reichler's knit and crochet classes in New Paltz, NY., with instruction, tips, techniques, and videos.
My goal is to give you all the skills you need to become independent and creative with your knitting and to derive pleasure from the process.
Don't delay. Classes start November 10. Register online.
We have time for another set of classes before Christmas. Let me know if you want to join in..
We'll be offering a knitting fundamentals course again, as well as the popular projects class. The workshop will focus on hats -- just in time for Christmas gifts.
Knitting Fundamentals - For the novice to advanced beginner - $65* Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 pm
November 10 and 17, skip Thanksgiving, December 1, 18, 15 and 22
Classes at this level will contain a mix of new knitters, early learners, and more accomplished students who will benefit from review.It’s a good idea to begin with this course, even if you have knit or crocheted before, to be sure you have a thorough understanding of the fundamentals before continuing to another level.
If you are a beginner, you will learn to knit, purl, cast on, and bind off, plus a myriad of other things as they come up, such as yarn characteristics, importance of gauge swatches, etc. Those who are more experienced will be given additional homework and/or a project.
Many students take this course several times,* advancing as they go, with beginners learning from the more advanced knitters and the more advanced knitters benefitting from reviewing the instruction given to the beginners.No two classes are exactly the same because they are driven by the needs and progress of the group and the particular questions that are raised.*$55 for students who repeat this class.
