If you’ve checked the Events Calendar on our website recently, you’ve noticed a new slate of classes have been added for our January through April session. Let’s take a look!
January 22nd, February 5th & 19th
March 4th & 18th, April 1st, 15th & 29th
January 16th & 30th, February 13th & 27th
March 12th & 26th, April 9th & 23rd
First, a major change to our Sock class – due to its popularity, we’ve decided to make it a weekly feature. Alternating between Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings, there’s now two hours every week set aside for talking about my one true love – socks! This makes it easier for everyone to take part in the action, as you only pay for the classes you can attend, when you can attend them, working up a pair of socks at your own pace.

Another much requested class – granny squares! This session will cover all the basics involved in this classic crochet project. Copies of Cyndy’s own granny square pattern will be on hand as well.
Knitting Colourwork Mittens
Saturday, February 20th, March 5th & 19th 10:30AM – 12:30PM
Learn to knit a pair of Norwegian-style colourwork mittens using Henriette Hope’s free pattern Norwegian Selbu Mittens! Stranded colourwork is an addictive and impressive -looking technique that involves reading charts – this class is perfect for the knitter who has knit mittens before but wants to try stranded colourwork, or perhaps the knitter who has tried stranded colourwork but never a selbu mitten! Three sessions long, there’ll be plenty of time for you to finish a mitten at your own pace.
Knit a Cabled Hat
Thursday March 17th & 31st 1 – 3PM
Nothing says cold weather chic like a cabled hat! Perfect for either the hat or cable beginner looking for their next project, we’ll use the Purl Soho classic Traveling Cable toque pattern to work up a new staple for your winter wardrobe – or a great gift for that worthy person in your life! The first session will allow us to start the hat and talk about different cabling techniques, and two weeks later we will meet again for a second session to tackle any issues you encountered and talk about decreasing and finishing.
Crochet a Hat
Saturday, April 2nd 11AM – 1PM
A perfect class for the beginner or intermediate crocheter seeking a fast project to introduce working in the round & shaping! Copies of free pattern provided, simply bring your own worsted weight yarn & 4.5mm or 5mm hook.
