new knitters…

Learn To Knit 3

Learn to Knit Class 2

After a recent Learn To Knit Class, our group proudly posed wearing their first project.

The class met for 2 hours one Saturday afternoon, and another 2 hours the following Saturday.  They learned to cast on, knit, and purl in the first class – went home to work on the project during the course of the week – and returned to learn how to bind off, weave in ends, and finish in the second class.  The project took 5 to 6 hours.  Each person chose a special button or embellishment to complete and personalize their scarf.  The results were great, and as unique as the individuals who made them.

It’s always amazing and gratifying to me when people come to our shop not knowing how to knit, and leave wearing a lovely knitted creation.

Check our Class Schedule for upcoming sessions if you’d like to learn how to knit.

mucho malabrigo!

We finally received our much anticipated Malabrigo order… 7 boxes filled with all of our favorite colors and textures.

So, our shelves are happily re-stocked with Rasta, Aquarella, Gruesa, Chunky, Twist, Worsted, Rios and Sock yarn.

It’s been moving fast already, so come claim yours soon.

This group took our Hat Class.  After just 2 1/2 hours they were actually wearing their finished project.  Very impressive!

Want to learn to make one?

Sign up for our Hat Class.

The next one on our schedule is Saturday January 29th from 12-2:30.  ($22 plus supplies).         Call us to register  (773.486.8996)

You’ll learn to knit in the round on circular and double pointed needles, and you’ll master decreasing.  With these new skills, you’ll be ready for anything.

The shop occasionally hosts special events, book signings, trunk shows, and sales. Private events can also be arranged at the shop by request.

Perhaps you'd like to have a birthday party centered around a knitting lesson. Or a baby shower during which everyone learns to knit a square for a baby blanket. Or a corporate networking event that features knitting instruction. Or a book club that encourages participants to knit while discussing the book. Nina: a well-knit shop is available for these and other special events.
