Do you feel like some people just whip through projects, blazing through their stitches? Do you suffer from wrist pain from knitting so dang much and throwing the yarn a zillion times a project? Pump the breaks on that, and join the ranks of the Continental Knitters! 

What is this magical continental knitting, you ask? In it's most basic form, you hold your yarn in your left hand, rather than right, slightly rotating your write to catch the yarn. Stitches fly across the needles, and less wrist movement equals less wrist pain!

Like most folks in this part of the world, I learned the English Method or "Throw Method" first (thanks Gramma!!!). After knitting 4 hours a day, though, my wrists would be killing me. I was 15 years old, and was in constant wrist pain. I had a stack of projects waiting for me to knit them. I was frustrated, and looking for a change. I painstakingly taught myself Continental knitting through some grainy videos and a sheer amount of trial and error. I'm here, teaching this class, so that you can learn it the easy way.

🧶 Bring your materials (small ball of yarn and materials) for practicing!
🧶 Expert guidance to help you unravel the mysteries of knitting.
🧶 By the end of the session, you'll learn the 2 types of knitting, and learn 3 variations for the purl method. 

Class is Thursday Nov 2, 6:45 - 8:30 pm.

Classes are limited to 8 people and take place in The Creation Station @ The Langford Station (aka a few doors down from The Spinnacle Yarns, in the largest shipping container).

Note: This class is designed for people who already know how to knit & purl.

For the health and safety of all, masks are mandatory & will happily be provided free of charge if you forget one!
