May – June 2015
Have you ever wanted to knit cables but been too afraid to try? Then this class is for you. They will knit a small cabled coaster. It’s easier than it looks. They will supply the pattern. You will need a pair of size 8 knitting needles, a cable needle, and less than a skein of worsted weight yarn in a light color (no black, dark gray, or dark brown, please). You should already know how to cast on, bind off, and knit and purl. If you’ve done those things before, but are hazy on the details they can help you catch up before the class meets. This event will be held at the Senior Center on Tuesday, May 26th at 9:30 am.
