Knitting Class at Mass Ave Wine Shop: Week 1 January 26, 2010

Filed under: Classes,knitting,wine — sundayafternoonhousewife @ 8:05 pm

Last Saturday was the first knitting class at Mass Ave Wine Shop hosted by yours truely. It was so fantastically fun! We had 15 knitters show up, and there were newbie knitters as well as seasoned knitters who were eager to improve upon their knitting skills. The newbie knitters learned how to cast on and how to do the knit stitch. The advanced knitters learned how to cable! It was a very fun afternoon and I was so busy I regretfully forgot to take a single photo! Check in next week for photos from this week. I promise I will remember to take them. We all enjoyed the great atmosphere of Mass Ave Wine as well as our glass (or glasses…) of wine!

I had a glass of the Bitch Bubbly which was so good, but everyone all tried different wines and some had cheese plates, too.

Week two is going to be just as much fun as last week. Newbie knitters are going to learn how to purl and cast off, and advanced knitters will be learning how to knit in the round with double pointed needles! Both groups will be working on a pair of cozy and quick to complete wrist warmers.

I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and hoping to see some new faces this week as well. If you’re looking to find more info, you can download this week’s flier right here: KNIT ONE, SWIRL TWO flyer for WEEK TWO
