JANUARY 9   Beginner Knitting                                         INSTRUCTOR: Erin Oneisom

Knitting 101:  You will learn cast on, cast off, knit stitch and pearl stitch. All knitting is a combination/variation on these 4 stitches.  For this first class you will need a pair of knitting needles (recommend sizes 8,9, or 10-try holding the different sizes for comfort). and a skein of yarn (recommend Lion Brand since it is inexpensive, easy to work with, and seems to last forever.  I DO NOT recommend Red Heart for this beginning work.)  Materials can be found at Wal-Mart, Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc.
