Combined class for the Building series of knitting books, meeting every third Saturday starting January 19, 2019:
Building Blocks: Build your knitting skills one square at a time in a series of 12 fun patterns. Starting with simple knit and purl stitches, your confidence will grow as you progress through several major knitting principles. Each block focuses on new stitches and techniques in a sequential fashion that builds upon the previously learned skill. This class requires 12 months/sessions to complete.
Building in Color: Continue to enhance skills you learned in Building Blocks (or through other knitting experience) by continuing to Build in Color. Learn to manage multiple colors and create a gorgeous sampler afghan knit in panels that are sewn together and finished with a simple border. This project requires 11 months/sessions to complete.
Building in Lace: A carefully designed sequence of stitch patterns that introduce knitters to lace work starting with the basics and working towards more difficult stitch patterns to make one elegant shawl. The shawl is made up in nine sections, working one section each month of the class. This class requires 9 months/sessions to complete.
