Saturday, February 3rd from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the Desert Fiber Arts studio on Union

Earlene and Clifton will be hosting a 3-5 month study group to learn some basics on your knitting machine. It will be once a month or so on Saturday mornings at the Desert Fiber Arts studio. You will learn enough basics so you can make hats with ribbing without a ribber attachment, scarves and afghans. We will learn the techniques so you can eventually do a vest or sweater. Socks – you can knit socks on the flat bed knitting machines!

The first meeting was on January 13th. It’s a good thing Clifton came to help because I was stuck. She showed a very cool way to cast on. It is very slick and sure beats the way the instruction book said to do it.

What to bring

  • Flatbed knitting machine
  • Machine instruction book – if you have it
  • All the tools that came with your machine
  • 4 oz acrylic yarn that fits your machine (Sock weight, sport weight or worsted weight)
  • Scissors
  • Notebook and pen for notes
  • 2 – 4 clothes pins
