We want to encourage our beginning knitters! To do so, we’ve come up with our Beginner’s Series. This is a crucial step in moving to intermediate. This first cabled scarf was designed by Yarnista Janice Feld with the intent to teach our beginners the basic cable (This class is a prerequisite to any of the intricate cable classes: Cabled Jacket, Cabled Shawl, Cabled Poncho or the Cassidy sweater). This 2-session class will be held (the first session is two hours; the second is one-hour for troubleshooting):
- Tuesdays 1 to 3 pm Feb. 6 and 1 to 2 pm Feb 13.
- Saturdays 10 am to 12 pm, March 3 and 10 to 11 am March 17
- Tuesdays 1 to 3 pm March 6 and 1 to 2 pm March 13
All materials can be purchased at The Flying Needles for 10% off after you have registered. The class is limited to 6 people. Register for this class by stopping by or calling us at (757) 345-3655.
