Knitting


Studio Knitting for Beginners and Continuing
Keep your mind sharp by learning a new skill and keep your fingers nimble by keeping them moving. This open-knitting format is for both beginners and those who want to continue furthering their knitting skills. The participant will learn the basic stitches and develop skills in maintaining an even tension in the piece. The instructor will provide practice needles and practice yarn until the participant determines a project. After the selection of a project, the participant will purchase the necessary supplies. Projects have included knitting a scarf, sweater, blanket, and handbag. Instructor Lizabeth Doty, a professional educator for over 45 years, has taught some of her hobbies, calligraphy and knitting, to students of all ages for years. Join these fun, productive classes. She is a former teacher. Class size limited. Makeup dates, if needed, are added to an open date in the schedule or to the end of the session.

Knitted Wet Felting
Designed for Beginner+ students (ability to knit and purl required), this two-session course will describe the various felting techniques:  wet, needle, and Nuno.  Participants will prepare a knitted project and finish it by using the wet felting technique.  In the first session, after having a brief history of felting, participants will select a project.  Project ideas include handbags, slippers, tote bags, hats, pouches, and gift bags.  In the second class, the instructors will present specific guidelines for felting each completed individual project.
