08/04 • KID KNIT: SCARF • Intro to Knitting, August 4 (11-12 pm) Sunday$15.00
Let's get those little fingers into some fiber fun! Introducing a child to the wonderful world of knitting is a fantastic hobby and craft that they can continue to practice throughout their life. Knitting is an excellent form of active meditation and a way to calm the mind and body. It is also fun! Your kid will be so proud of making a scarf. And when it's knit up in beautiful, super soft, hand-dyed merino yarn, it is guaranteed to be gorgeous. Knitting is super portable, so make this one of your activities to pack on trips as an alternative to being on an iPad. Welcome to zen. Our kid knitting classes are for 6 to 12 year olds. If parents are interested in learning to knit, please sign up for our adult classes.
Once your child has done this intro class, then they will be ready for our KID KNIT 102: HAT class, which will introduce knitting in the round and the purl stitch. Kids are welcome to take either of these classes repeatedly in order to get support and gain confidence with their knit skills.
We have Knit Group every Wednesday from 5 to 7 pm. All are welcome! It's a great opportunity to make time for knitting, to get inspired, and to connect. We love seeing your progress and helping if you get stuck.
