Classes, new and old

I have been working on classes.  I have loom knitting and how to knook added to the schedules.  Both of these tools would make great gifts to people who want to craft with yarn but are unsure of themselves, people who have issues with motor skills, or just want to learn a new skill. 

Loom knitting can be done in the round and reminds me of the spool knitting I learned as a child.  Loom knitting can be done on long looms and either in the round to make very wide panels or  so that there is a knit side on both sides.  The round looms can also make flat panels.

The knook is knitting on a hook that has a tail.  It is a cross of knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet.  This could be great for someone who is interested in learning a new skill.  This could be the thing for someone who doesn't like knitting but is interested in gaining that look with a hook.

Classes for these techniques will be starting in January.  They will run on Saturdays.  See the class schedules for dates and times.
