Introduction to Lace Knitting -- Bring Your First Project with Julie Rose will be held on Monday, November 17 at 10:30 am or 5:30 pm. Never tried lace knitting? Think it looks too hard? It's easy. If you can knit, you can knit lace. Bring a pattern, needles and yarn. We'll learn new ways to cast on, how to read knitting charts, and the different ways
to decrease stitches.
Tubular (and other) cast-ons with Sally Halliday, on Thursday, November 13, at 4 pm: A tubular cast-on is very stretchy and resembles the top edge of commercially made socks. It works great for hats as well. Sally will instruct you in this method and other cast-on methods. Bring your "cast-on" questions!
