If you know me, there’s a really good chance you’ve talked to me about learning to knit or told me a story about a special person in your life who knits or crochets. It’s now a full month into the new year and we’re in the heart of a Chicago winter. What better time to finally learn a new skill with the value-add of getting to spend time with ME?

In partnership with Allyson at The Sweatshop of Love, I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be teaching Beginner Knitting, Next Step Knitting and Group Knitting Classes! Check out the listings below and see which one is the best fit for you. To sign up, e-mail Allyson with the name of the class and the date you’d like to sign up for.

Beginner Knitting
Always wanted to learn to knit? This is the perfect time! It’s still cold so you can sit inside and practice your new skillz, and make things for yourself before you get wrapped up in knitting all your holiday presents! This 2 hour class is a great intro to knitting. You’ll learn to knit and purl, the two stitches you’ll be using for all your new projects, to cast on (or start a project) and to bind off (to end a project).

Tuesday March 10th 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Cost: $30, add materials for $10. Location: Starbucks at Wilson and Lincoln

Next Step Knitting
You can knit and you can purl, but how can you turn those two stitches into a project? Next Step Knitting will take you through how to increase and decrease stitches, preparing you to make anything from a hat to handwarmers! Bring that special project you’ve had your eye on and get started in style.
