IMPORTANT NOTICE: The final class of this series is thusfar still scheduled to take place at Painted Sky Center for the Arts on March 16; however, this may be subject to postponement as the Covid-19 situation develops (see more). If you feel ill, STAY HOME. For those who wish to attend, please wash hands regularly, and try to maintain social distancing (at least 3 ft, optimally >6 feet).

Once you know how to Cast on, Knit, Purl and Bind off these 6 classes will take you from Beginner to Intermediate knitter. I will walk you through projects that I have specifically chosen to teach you the following skills: Increases, decreases, yarn over, slip stitches, cabling, magic loop, joining and knitting in the round, knitting through the back loops, learn to make and use a gauge swatch, counting stitches/rows, how to read patterns and beginner stranded knitting (colorwork). I will also teach you how to wet block and wind yarn on a ball winder. We will talk about different weights of yearn, needles, double pointed needles and different ways to cast on and bind off. If all of this sounds like a foreign language, that's OK, it wont when we are finished! Picture are only two of the four projects we will make!

About Jessica:

How fun for me, I get to share my passion of knitting with you.
I was born and raised right here in Mt. Vernon. I married my High School sweetheart and together we have 2 children. I own Backwoods Soap Company and am a stay at home Mom. I love my jobs.

I learned to knit in the remote fishing town of Cordova Alaska in 2017. We lived there one summer, while my husband was busy working, I decided to take a Knit & Purl class. The very next thing I did was a sweater class. It's safe to say I was completely hooked. Knitting in Cordova is very popular, classes and get-togethers were common, I loved them all. I became friends with amazing, uplifting woman.

Since coming home that fall my obsession with knitting continued but I have missed my knitting community. By offering a variety of classes and get-togethers I look forward to building with you what I found in Cordova. Basically, I want people as hooked on knitting as I am. I want this to be an uplifting group for woman of all ages.
