KNITTING

Ages 16 and up
Instructor: Nikki Stadler, Expert Knitter with 20 years experience

**OPEN LEVEL KNITTING NIGHT**
Are you a knitter who knows the basics, but can’t seem to find the courage to cast on that shawl/hat/sock/sweater you have your eye on? Have a knitting project that is stuck? Is it taunting you from a cute bag or basket in the corner of your living room? I can help you with that! This weekly workshop is an open forum for knitting questions and help. Bring whatever you are working on for some guidance or to be inspired by projects your neighbors are currently tackling. That way you can feel secure starting that new challenge with plenty of support. If you wish to purchase a series the sessions are bundled as follows:

Mondays 6:30-8:30
Cost: You can drop in for a single session for $25 or you can purchase a session series of 4 for $90.

SESSION 3: October 30th, November 6th, 13th, & 27th
REGISTER HERE FOR SESSION 3

Note: Knitting 102 and 103 are now part of the Open Knitting Night.  Nikki will incorporate the skills taught in these classes into the Open Knitting Night.  Please join us!

**KNITTING 101**
Due to a lack of participants, Knitting 101 has been postponed. If you are interested in taking this class, please e-mail us at info@friendsoflostcorner.org

Ever wanted to learn to knit? In knitting 101 you will learn the basics including how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off, seam your knitting, and some finishing techniques. Everything you need to know to make a pair of hand warmers! This class is designed for brand newbies, but would be a great refresher course if it has been a while since you picked up a pair of needles. Kits will be available for purchase for $12 which include a set of size US 9 needles and some worsted weight yarn.
