Class Descriptions

Drop in classes


These classes are available three times a week during the fall and winter seasons and are open to knitters of all ages and skill levels! This is the time to come in and learn to knit, get help on your project or even learn a new technique. We will teach you anything you would like to know! Each student works on their own projects individually and the teachers come around and help with whatever problems arise or with whatever questions you might help. There is always a great amount of one on one time spent with each student as needed.

We do not take reservations for drop in classes- come when you can and don’t worry about being right on time! We accommodate everyone and their own unique schedules.

Magic loop circular knitting- Oct 4

Never use double pointed needles again! Magic loop is a fantastic technique that uses one long circular needle to knit in the round eliminating the use for double points! You can use this technique to replace any project that calls for double pointed needles such as socks, mitts, fingerless gloves, sweater sleeves and even for the tops of hats!

Bring with you: Worsted weight yarn and circular needles to match in 32” or 40” length
Skill level: Enthusiastic beginner! Must know how to knit and purl


“I can’t wear that colour!” (Not just for knitter’s!)- Oct 11

Let colour do the talking as we share all about… colour families, hard to wear colours, universally flattering colours and variegated colours in yarns and fabrics. Learn how to envision colours in a project and recognize colours you love that don’t love you back and how to work with them. Working with fabric samples and colour wheels you’ll make a personalized go to colour list. We’ll swatch with different colours including hand-dyed colours, talk about washing and blocking different colours and discuss the dying process that goes into creating all them. See if the colour you love will work for garments you can actually wear. Maybe the next time you think, “I can’t wear that colour!” you just might be wrong!

Bring with you: Notebook & pen/pencil and an open mind
Skill level: All skill levels welcome

Fibre is Your Friend (Not just for knitter’s!)- Oct 18

There’s so many exciting knitting fibres available today, let’s get familiar with all their properties and figure out what to use and where!  We’ll talk animal versus plant fibres and get familiar with where you can and can’t substitute fibres called for in a pattern and how to do this properly. Learn about super wash wools versus feltable wools and the universal myth of wool allergies. Create fibre swatches using everything from acrylic to bamboo and merino to alpaca, and then discuss their unique properties and how to care for each one. This session will completely change the way you shop, and look at yarns.

Bring with you: An assortment of knitting needles and any yarns from your stash that you would like to test or fibres that you are unsure of their content

Skill level: All skill levels welcome
