Kids' Learn to Knit

August 16, 2018, 1–3 p.m.

In this class, kids aged 9+ will learn how to cast on stitches and create the basic knit stitch to knit a bracelet, a bean bag, or a hair scrunchie. Yarn is included; however, children will need their own knitting needles.

Fee: $15 (+ HST; includes yarn)

Finishing Skills

August 18, 2018, 10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

While many of us don't enjoy sewing the parts of our projects together, it doesn't make sense to spend all that time knitting and not take the time to do nice finishing work. In this workshop, delivered by a longtime knitaholic, you will learn how to finish your projects so that they look practically seamless! By the end, you will know:

  • How to join stocking-stitch shoulders
  • How to join same-facing stocking-stitch panels
  • How to sew vertical to horizontal stocking-stitch panels
  • How to join garter-stitch panels

This class will require you to do some prep work (knitting swatches that will be sewn together in the class). 

Fee: $25 (+ HST)

Instructor: Brenda


Beginning-to-End Sock Class

Thursdays, September 20, 27, 1–3 p.m.

In this class, you will make a baby sock from the cuff all the way to the toe and will learn skills translatable to adult socks! Participants in the course should be comfortable knitting in the round using double-pointed needles, casting on, knitting, and purling. You will learn:

  • The basics of sock construction
  • How to turn a heel
  • How to knit in your ends
  • How to change colours (if you choose the baby work sock)
  • How to graft 
  • And more

The yarn and the pattern are included in the price of this class.

Fee: $30 (+ HST)
