Learn How to Knit in Denver, Colorado

Some of you know this already but I teach classes locally that allow me to share my love for knitting with new-comers, intermediate knitters and advanced knitters looking to learn something new.IMG_0553

I recently taught a Beginning Knitting class at my favorite brewery – Grandma’s House – and had such a fun time with these ladies!IMG_0555

Everyone (every single person, no knitter left behind!) learned how to cast on, knit and bind off during the first week’s class in which we knitted a little scarf perfectly sized for your favorite beer bottle. IMG_0556

The second class the following week the students were able to refresh their cast on and knitting skills while also learning how to purl and work a simple decrease.  At the end of this lesson everyone had made a matching hat to fit the beer bottle that was now scarf-adorned!IMG_0557

I’ll be teaching this beginning knitting class again March 4th and 11th starting at 6pm both nights at the Grandma’s House brewery.  Feel free to sign up via Facebook or Dabble!IMG_0563

I’ll also be teaching an intermediate class later in March that will produce a hat so that students can learn to knit in the round and work various stitch patterns – and still walk away with a finished project!  That’s the best part of any class, in my opinion – something to show for your efforts.IMG_0570

I hope to see you at some of them! And if you have any ideas for future classes you’d like to see from me, please do share them 🙂IMG_0572

January Class Schedule

Did you miss the first set of classes I taught at Grandma’s House the past few months?  Don’t worry, I’ll be teaching again at the beginning of 2015!  More classes, topics and projects will be coming in the next year as well, so keep your ear to the ground (or to my Facebook page) for details on those.january class flier with deets

January 7th and 14th will be more Beginning (Level 1) Knitting Classes and we’ll be working on similar projects – a mini scarf and hat perfectly sized for your favorite beer bottle!IMG_5863

And instead of following it up with the Intermediate Class where we learned how to knit small sweaters the first time around, this time we’re going to learn how to knit washcloths!  I still consider this a beginner class – it builds on the basic knitting skills but also teaches students how to work different stitches including increases and decreases.  These Beginner (Level 2) Classes will be held on January 21st and 28th, same time (6pm-8pm) and same place (Grandma’s House Brewery).IMG_8074

Classes are $50 for the two sessions and I will bring all the materials with me, you don’t need to bring a thing! Except a friend, you can certainly bring those.  And if you *do* bring a friend, you can each get a discount and pay only $40 each for the two sessions and all materials!  That leaves plenty to get yourself a delicious brew from Grandma.
