Here are my scheduled classes for October. They will all be held at Passionknit (3355 Yonge St., Toronto 416-322-0688). Please email or call for more information.
This ongoing class will focus on learning knitting and crochet stitches from basic to advanced. We will be focusing on a new stitch each week, and over the weeks, will create several stitch sample squares that can then be pieced together to make a blanket. Each week you will receive a new handout explaining the stitch. Pick out your favorite Passionknit yarn and get cracking! This class will be ongoing and will alternate weeks between knitting and crochet. Come to one or several! $30 plus materials.
