Learn to Knit Cables
Saturdays, November 5 & 19, 2016: 10:30 am to 12:30 pm - $30 (includes both sessions)
Can you knit and purl? If so, you can cable! Cables are much easier than they look! This two session course covers a simple twist cable and button holes while letting you work along at your own speed. The first session will cover getting started and off on the right foot for success. We'll get the cables set up and learn how to count rows in between cable rows. Between sessions you will be responsible for knitting as far as the button hole end. The second session will cover shaping the ends, making button holes, sewing on buttons and finishing.
Materials: 100m worsted weight yarn, 4mm needles (straight or circular), cable needle, two 7/8" buttons. Pattern included in cost.

Christmas Power Knitting
Saturday, November 19, 2016: 11:00 am to 4:00 pm - Free/Drop In
If you're anything like us you feel that Christmas panic as December approaches. Let's come together to knit and get on top of it while Christmas is still over a month away! We'll have a variety of small knitting project ideas and moral support to get you in the Christmas spirit!
Pictured at the right are two versions of our Father Christmas colour - exclusively at Have a Yarn during the Fall and Winter.
