Once the thrill of learning a new craft has passed, it can be overwhelming to choose the next step. Some of us tackle ambitious projects, discovering methods through a combination of mistakes and research. Others carefully practice the basics, but might feel a bit stuck in a rut. No matter where you are on your knitting path, our Advanced Beginner classes are designed to give you guidance, build skills, and avoid bad habits before they start. These classes focus on understanding techniques and terms, so that you can go forth with confidence to try the projects you dream of!
