Sweater Club

Every Tuesday from 6 - 8 PM, $10 per session

Attend only the sessions that work for you (RSVP each week is required). 
Project supplies (ie. yarn and pattern) to be purchased at Home Made.

Nothing compares to a handmade sweater, especially when it has a timeless and stylish fit and is made with quality yarn. If you'd like to add more handmade sweaters to your wardrobe, we're here to offer help, motivation and community along the way. New members are always welcome!

This “class” is structured a little differently. We’re offering a specific time and space to provide help and instruction for a group of knitters all working on sweaters. Instead of one class fee for a specific group of dates, you can show up to as many or few meetings as you please. If you require more help/instruction than can be provided during Sweater Club or you can't make it to our Tuesday night meetings, our Drop-In Knitting Help and private lesson services are available. Details about those services can be found here

To participate, choose a sweater project from our pattern selection and then purchase the yarn and pattern for your project in our shop. Cost is $10 per meeting and we ask that you RSVP by each Tuesday afternoon to let us know if you’re coming. We recommend that you feel confident in knitting basics like cast on, knit, purl, and bind off before joining us for this project.

Supplies: Materials are dependent upon your chosen sweater project. Project ideas (that have been or are currently being made in Sweater Club) include: GrampsKillybegs, Portland PulloverBlank Canvas, PalladioAntrorse, Flax, and Lucia Hoodie

 

 

Learn to Knit Class

Learn to Knit

$85 for two 2-hour sessions
(includes yarn, knitting needles and pattern, too!)

Thursdays, April 27 & May 4 from 6 - 8 PM

Learn all the knitting basics like cast on, knit, purl, and bind off while you make a cozy neck warmer or cowl. We'll discuss other important concepts in the world of knitting like choosing the right yarn for your project, what is gauge, knitting tools, and finishing techniques. 

This class is intended for the absolute beginner so no experience is required! Those who are seeking a knitting refresher are welcome, too! 

This class is two 2-hour sessions. The class fee includes your supplies like yarn, knitting needles, and pattern ($34 value). We will offer practice yarn to start but choose high quality yarn for even our beginner classes because we believe that the process of knitting is just as important as the finished project. And, working with beautiful yarn is a big part of that. Additional supplies like a button and yarn needle that are needed to finish your project are also available for purchase in our shop.

Christmas Stocking Class


Christmas Stocking

$60 for three 2-hour sessions
(supplies not included)

Sundays, March 5, 12 & 26 from 11 AM - 1 PM

Get a jump start on those hand knit Christmas stockings! This is a "choose-your-own-adventure" kind of knitting class where we will all be working from Melynda Bernardi's Comfort & Joy pattern book of 7 original stocking designs. Select a simple stockinette design or try your hand at color work for your stocking. Whichever you choose, you'll cherish these stockings year after year. And, you'll have plenty of time to make more if your goal is to create a set for the whole family.

This class is intended for beginner/advanced beginner knitters who know knitting basics. It's also helpful if you already have some experience with double pointed needles. But, if you don't, a patient attitude and adventurous spirit will take you far!

Homework: Knit your gauge swatch:  19 stitches and 27 rounds sts = 4 " in stockinette stitch (in the round).

Supplies: Comfort & Joy pattern book, worsted weight yarn in colors and yardage to complete your chosen stocking design, US 6 double pointed knitting needles (or size needed to obtain gauge -- we also have 12" circular needles that you could also use for part of your stocking if that's easier), stitch markers, and yarn needle to be purchased at Home Made.

 

Basic Socks

$60 for three 2-hour sessions
(supplies not included)

Let us know if you're interested and we'll schedule another class!

Learn to knit socks! We'll teach you how to knit socks from cuff to toe on double pointed needles. In this class you'll learn how to cast on and divide your stitches on your needles, how to turn a heel, make a gusset, and close up the toe with the kitchener stitch.

This class is intended for beginner/advanced beginner knitters who already have some experience with double pointed needles. For instance, if you've knit a few hats in the round using circular and double pointed needles you're ready!

Homework: Knit your gauge swatch:  24 sts = 4 " in stockinette stitch.

Supplies needed: 2 - 3 skeins of Schoppel Wolle Ambiente yarn to be purchased at Home Made, size US 3 double pointed needles (or size needed to obtain gauge), and a yarn needle. Knitting needles and notions are also sold at Home Made.
