We are always willing and happy to help you with your projects any time you come into the shop, but every Wednesday afternoon is dedicated to providing you a little extra help and the support of other knitters. This is not only a great time to get help on a pattern or ask questions, it can also work like a study group to accompany your class.

Knitting sweaters in pieces can feel intimidating, but the structure and fit of a well-made pieced sweater cannot be underestimated. This class will cover sweater-making essentials from getting the right gauge and taking accurate measurements to blocking and seaming your finished sweater, so you have a successful, supported experience. There will be four workshop sessions spread over three months that will take you from the planning of your sweater to the finishing stages.
