Classes for May and June 2015

Thankfully, it's finally spring!  Even though we're out and about more, there's always a reason to be knitting. Maybe you want to retire the projects from the winter that you never quite finished. Maybe you want to try out some new summer-weight yarn. Or maybe you want to learn a new skill. Well, come along with us for one last session before the summer settles in.

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

Section 1: Five Mondays from 9:30 to 11:00 am
     May 11 and 18, June 1, 8 and 15 (no class 5/25)
Section 2: Five Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:00 pm
     May 12 and 19, June 2, 9 and 16 (no class 5/26)

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.

Make a Lacy Summer Sweater - $65
Five Sundays from 3:30 to 5:00 pm
     May 3, 10, 24 and 31, June 14

You know that all the "real" knitters really get going in the summer. We just switch to smaller projects and lighter yarn. So..... come along and make this beautiful lacy summer vest to throw over a dress or tank top.

We'll help you find the right yarn and get the best fit. You'll learn an easy lace pattern and get comfortable with classic sweater design elements. The class is designed to have a couple of two-week gaps to allow you to get ahead and clear up any problems at the next meeting.

Your Project - $50
Five Sundays from 5:30 to 7:00 pm
     May 3, 10, 24 and 31, June 14

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. Bring your ideas for something you want to try. Bring your problems with getting the right fit or understanding the pattern. Learn how to sew up and finish that project that has been bugging you.

  • 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 $50/hour and split the cost.
