09/03 • KID KNIT SERIES • Beginner Knitting for Kids Ages 6-12, September 3-October 1 (3:30-4:30 pm) Tuesdays$75.00
We love nurturing the budding curiosity and enthusiasm of new, young knitters. This series of 5 gatherings will support your child through their first knit project and help them create a knitting habit. Total newbies are welcome as well as those who have knit before. Kids are welcome to choose to knit a scarf (flat knitting on straight needles) or a hat (knitting in the round on circular needles). We will give hands on attention to each kid and their needs so that they feel supported and excited about what they are making. After they master this project, next thing you know they will be wanting to knit sweaters. But let's not get ahead of ourselves quite yet. We predict that your family will be getting handmade beanies for the holidays! Our kid knitting classes are for 6 to 12 year olds. If your child is 13 or older, they are welcome in our adult knitting classes.
We have Knit Group every Wednesday from 4 to 6 pm. All are welcome! It's a great opportunity to make time for knitting, to get inspired, and to connect. We love seeing everyone's progress. There is not an instructor at knit group, so it is more for making time to knit and creating community.
