 Registration is closed for this event

The class is for beginners to those with some experience.This class will teach you basic knitting stitches of casting on, knit, purl, and binding off. You will learn what the strange words and symbols mean in knitting patterns. You will learn what the different types and weights of yarns are called and what size and type of knitting needles to use with each. You will also learn to read labels on skeins of yarn.

We will talk about your first project, so bring your ideas. Good first projects are scarves and hats. Just in time for holiday gift giving!

Before you go out and spend a fortune on needles and yarns we start with the basic equipment.

  2. A skein of medium weight  yarn
  3. Yarn needle or crochet hook
  4. Scissors

About Jeanne Willis:

I grew up in Manhattan. That's Manhattan, NYC. I have always loved crafts and fiber arts. My father owned a sports wear design and manufacturing business in the garment district in NYC. He taught me the finer points of garment making and tailoring. I made my first dress at age six. 

My husband and I belong to the Society for Creative Anachronism (sca.org) where we learn about life during the middle ages. I design and make all of our garments and even his armour. I teach at many events that we attend.

We retired here in May 2015 with our five cats and two little dogs. We are down to one cat and two dogs. The cats were elderly rescues and all lived past 18.

We love living in Montana and especially Livingston.
