Are you a true beginner with no knitting experience? This is where you start! You'll learn to cast on, knit, purl and cast off. We'll review troubleshooting techniques to help you identify and correct typical "beginner" mistakes. By the end of the class, you will be comfortable with the basic stitches using even tension. We'll work on knitting a practice swatch that can be used as a potholder or washcloth. Bring needles and one skein of yarn to first class. Details: you will need one skein of Aran or bulky weight yarn (sometimes referred to as "chunky"). Light colors work best, as do yarns with smooth texture. You will also need a pair of knitting needles. Needle size should correspond to the weight of the yarn.
