Knitting Class at Mass Ave Wine Shoppe: Week 3 February 18, 2010

Casting on a new project at the start of class on 2/13/10

This past Saturday was our third week of  knitting class at Mass Ave Wine Shoppe, and our first week with finished knitting projects! We had a brief hiatus last week while I took the day off for my birthday, and that gave plenty of time for a few finished projects. I’m so proud of these knitters who didn’t know a stitch when class started one month ago!

The first week of class we focused on learning the knit stitch and the second week on perfecting the purl. Eleanor (above) is showing of her ribbed wrist warmers, and Karen (below) shows off her knit scarf!

We had a really good time this week. Some of us enjoyed snacking on a goat cheese, basil pesto, and sun dried tomato torte with toasted batard, while others had croque mermaid sandwiches or cheese and crackers. Of course we all enjoyed various wines. This week I split a bottle of La Marouette Chardonnay with some of the ladies. Everything was fantastically fun!

This coming Saturday, class will kick-off at 4:30.  $15 will get you a glass of wine and a knitting lesson. This week the “regulars” will be learning how to knit on circular needles to make a hat, but you don’t need to know anything about knitting to come. Any one is welcome at any time and I am there for constant coaching and one-on-one lessons and help.  I hope you will join us!
