Intermediate Knitting

Knitting is a lost art that is making a comeback. It is great for both creative expression and therapeutic stress relief. After the success of the Learn to Knit class we are offering Intermediate Knitting class. For participants age 16+. Have you mastered casting on, knit stitch, purl stitch and casting off? Want to kick your skills up a notch and move up to being an intermediate knitter? This is a fun evening out full of knitting, laughing and socializing. Come join the fun!

Participants need to provide their own yarn and needles. Materials depend on the project selected. Please see pictures below.

Program will be led by Carolyn Joels who has been knitting for 56 years and loves to share this craft with all people. Carolyn designed many knitting patterns for Chatelaine magazine and Country Handcrafts magazine. Her original knitwear has won many ribbons at the Calgary Stampede handcrafts competition and the High River Country Fair, Millarville Country Fair and Heritage Park Harvest Fair. Carolyn has offered knitting classes since 1979 and she recently started offering knitting classes at several community associations around Calgary.
