About the event
Knitting is the process of using two or more needles to connect yarn into a series of loops to create a finished fabric. The word is derived from "knot," thought to originate from the Dutch verb "knutten," which is similar to the Old English cnyttan, “to knot.” Knitting has been used by various cultures around the world throughout history, and pre-history, to create garments, blankets, cloths, and more.
Learn the basics of knitting with wool yarn! We'll cover casting on, simple stitching and purling, binding off, and troubleshooting for beginners. Everyone will make two handmade knitting needles to take home! $40 includes all required tools, materials, tuition, and a snack and beverage from Milk and Honey.
