This 5-session course will teach you to knit a stocking (and by extension, socks!) in plenty of time for the holidays! This class is for someone with some basic knitting skills who would like to learn how to make something new in a fun and collaborative group. Instruction will be over five nights and will build a number of skills that can be used in other fun knitting projects.
Participants will need to buy and bring their own supplies, we suggest from the following links (remember to allow time for shipping!):
3 different colored skeins of yarn: https://www.knitpicks.com/yarn/wool-of-the-andes-worsted/c/5420103 (If providing your own yarn, you will need any worsted weight yarn and at least 110 yards of 3 different colors)
1 set of size 11 16″ circular needles: https://www.knitpicks.com/radiant-wood-16-fixed-circular-needle-size-11-8-00-mm/p/90534 (If you’ve taken one of Gina’s previous classes, you already have these needles!)
1 set of size 11 double pointed needles: https://www.knitpicks.com/radiant-wood-8-double-pointed-needles-size-11-8-00-mm/p/90494
Cancellation policy: Registrants may cancel their enrollment 48 hours (2 days) before a class begins for a refund or credit. After this deadline, no refund or credit is available. GAAC/The Stew reserves the right to cancel classes due to a minimum enrollment not being met.
