TAKING THE MYSTERY OUT OF KNITTING
You are invited to a knitting workshop on Sunday, February 21st from 2 to 5 p.m. at Yoga With Ona's (74 Locke St N). Cost is $2.
Knitters at any level and non-knitters are all welcome. Non-knitters can learn how to cast on, the basic knit and purl stitches, and cast off. All participants can learn to:
More advanced knitters may wish to explore cable knitting (Aran), Fair Isle (multi-colour horizontal stripes) and intarsia (colour blocks).
I have knitted for many years. I am not an expert knitter but pretty competent. There will be lots of different yarns available for looking at, squeezing and learning about different fibres, and several examples of knitted items.
The only materials you need are a pair of straight knitting needles (I suggest between 4 mm and 5 mm) and a ball of light coloured plain smooth (untextured) knitting yarn (so that you can see the stitches clearly). The yarn can be wool or acrylic - just something that feels nice to you. Zellers carries a good range, and Harts also has a basic supply. If you have a project on the go, please feel free to bring it along.
If anyone has a particular topic they would like covered, please email me at email@example.com. Hope to see you on the 21st.
