Event description

Description

Here at Good Fibrations, we are trying to do our part to reduce and reuse. We use paper instead of plastic whenever possible and encourage people to bring their own bags. As of Sept 1, 2019, we will be asking people to please either bring a reusable drink container to classes, or to feel free to use our beautiful pottery mugs and enjoy free tea and coffee that we always provide. Anyone bringing food to class, please take home all containers and wrappers. Just to add a carrot to this stick, we are putting everyone's name in for a draw on a fabulous Feel Good Store Kleen Kanteen.

Course Description:
This class will guide you through knitting ankle socks from the top-down using double-pointed needles. This is an intermediate course, so students should be familiar with basic knitting techniques including knit and purl stitches. Techniques covered include knitting in the round using DP (double-pointed) needles, creating the heel flap and turning the heel, creating the gusset, shaping the toe, and binding off with the Kitchener Stitch.

About the Instructor:
Andrea is a Graphic Designer and knitting addict. She grew up in a crafting household, and while she has always spent time drawing and painting, she didn’t attempt knitting until 2008. She has a Bachelor of Design (Honors) from NSCAD, and has put some of the design principles that she has learned to work when designing her own patterns for knitted accessories. She loves sharing her love of knitting with others!
