Last Chance!

On Saturday Nov 10 we are joining forces with yarn shops across the country to add 10,000 new knitters to our world.

How it Works: 
24 new knitters (Newbies) will get their first taste of knitting while making a pair of fingerless mitts with a yarn and needle kit supplied by Skacel.  
The 24 knitters (Sponsors) who bring these newbies to TKE will receive a Fingerless Mitt kit of their own provided by The Knitter’s Edge. 
A class for the newbies will be held on Sat 11/10/18 
1-3pm with our Beginner knitting teachers Becky and Julia.  Additional help will be provided by the Sponsors.  We will need their help most during cast on.

Build your own Ripple Blanket with Becky

This design-your-own ripple blanket will commence on Nov 7 during the crochet class.
Becky has come up with four basic ripple recipes, with instructions and examples for each. Each student should come to class with an idea of what yarn they would like to use and appropriate hook(s). In the first session, we would review the patterns (they are all easy) and hand out the instructions for swatches. After a week or two, each student should return with a swatch she likes and a target size for a blanket/afghan. We’d use the swatch to calculate yarn amounts and go from there. The project would be finished at their convenience.  Call to sign up.
