Learn a new knitting trick every month or just bring along your current project and sit and knit with like minded wool addicts!

 January 15th

Casting on … most of us stick to the method we learned when we first began to knit, however, there are many ways to cast on, each suited to different purposes.

 February 19th

There’s more than one way to knit. Try Continental and Portuguese knitting.

 March 19th

Let’s talk about socks!

 April 16th

Knitted felt … more accurately called ‘fulling’ . You’ll need to bring yarn made from animal fibre – sheep, llama, alpaca. Synthetic fibres will not felt.

 May 21st

Crochet … a natural partner to knitting. Start with creating a crochet edge to a knitted swatch. Learn to make a traditional ‘Granny Square’.

 June 18th

Get creative with colour. Be inspired by art and nature to swatch some new colour combinations, and have a go at Fair Isle.

Learn to cable. Take a good look at some classic Aran designs.
