- Do you admire a friend or colleagues ability to knit up scarves, hats, and other creations with yarn? - Have you always wanted to learn to knit? - Do you need a meditative, stress relieving hobby? If you answered YES to any or all of these questions, this is the class for YOU. At it's simplest, knitting is the manipulation of yarn, in the form of stitches, to create a textile or fabric. Once you learn just 2 (YES, only 2) stitches, the knitting world will open up to a wealth of possibilities! In this 2 hour class, you'll learn the basics of knitting: casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch, and casting off. We'll also cover pattern basics, choosing yarn, and finding your ideal knitting style (e.g. Continental vs. English - don't worry, we'll cover it in class!). You'll get started on a simple scarf that you can take home and finish with the skills you'll learn in this class. The class price includes: - 2 hours of instruction in a comfortable, laid back environment - water & coffee/tea - printed pattern to keep - printed instructions to keep - focused attention from ME while you learn - email support after the class for additional questions Materials required (student can bring or can be purchased at the class - see below): - a set of US10 Bamboo knitting needles - worsted weight yarn Materials Fee (optional): $15 for a set of #10 US Bamboo needles and one skein of worsted weight wool. I look forward to passing on my love of knitting with you! Gabrielle

I’m Gabrielle and I’m a knitter, painter, writer, rug hooker, designer, quilter, teacher and artist. Creating is my passion. I learned to knit as a young child from my Scottish grandmother and have been an avid knitter since then. Nothing is beyond your reach, knit-wise, with a good set of skills and just two simple stitches. A knit designer since 2005, my patterns have been published in books by Lion Brand Yarn and the Knitgrrrl series. I also knit on consignment and create unique patterns for clients, family and friends. With a supportive and gentle teaching style, I’ve taught countless number of people - young and old - to knit successfully. I love spreading the joy of knitting to folks - seeing their eyes light up when they ‘get it’ is amazing. I look forward to sharing the joy of knitting with you!
