Classes for January and February 2015

Discount for multiple classes: Because I know we all need to pinch our pennies (so we'll have more for yarn!), I give a discount of $5 per class, whenever you sign up for more than one class in a session.

Discount for introducing someone new to Knit With Judy: Receive $5 off a class for every friend who signs up for a class or private session for the first time, upon your recommendation.   

Register right away: Some of the classes may fill up quickly, so be sure to let me know right away if you see something that interests you.

Knitting Fundamentals - $75

Five Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 pm
January 13, 20 and 27, February 3 and 10

It's a good idea to begin with this course, even if you have knit before. While working on an easy project, you'll learn how to hold the yarn "continental style," as well as how to make knit and purl stitches, cast on and bind off, increase and decrease, and begin to read patterns.
You'll learn about yarn substitutions, the importance of gauge swatches and explore some repair techniques.
All in a stress-free environment with compatible learners, like yourself.

Note: Many students take fundamentals courses more than once, advancing as they go and working on projects that make use of the skills gained. No classes are exactly the same because they are driven by the needs and progress of the particular group and the questions that are raised. A discount of approximately 20% is offered for repeats of the same fundamentals course.

Socks - $45

Three Sundays from 1:00 to 3:00 pm
January 11 and 25, February 8

For intermediate to advanced students. At the first session, we will decide on a pattern and get you started with an amazing flexible cast on.
At the second class (two weeks later), you will turn the heel and make the gusset.
Finally (two weeks later), you will finish your first sock, using the kitchener stitch to close the toe.
You will learn all the skills you need to make socks for yourself or someone special, using either two circular needles or four double pointed needles (maybe even "magic loop").

Your Project - $50

Five Sundays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm
January 11, 18 and 25, February 1 and 8

This is a support class, with no specific teaching curriculum. Students are expected to have a facility with the concepts taught in the beginning fundamentals course.

Each student will begin (or continue) a personal project, such as a scarf, hat, sweater, jacket, vest, or bag. As needed, we will address yarn and needle choices, gauge swatching, pattern modification, trouble shooting, repairs, finishing, blocking, you name it.
You will receive individual help and benefit from the issues raised by others. The course may be repeated as often as desired, to get continuing ideas and hands-on assistance.

  • For the absolute beginner who wants individual knitting or crochet instruction.
  • For the student at any level who needs some additional help with a technique.
  • For anyone who is stumped by a pattern or wants to get some new ideas.

  • A great way to start.
  • Get additional help during classes or with a specific project.

Tip: If you are new to knitting or crocheting, and don't have the time for a full class, a good option is to sign up for a "package" of three lessons for $100. Or come with a friend for $40/hour and split the cost.
