Knitting is one of those crafts that does so much more than ‘it says on the tin’! Apart from being totally absorbing, creative and most importantly, enjoyable, it is good for mind, body and soul! It’s not just me saying that, it has been scientifically tested and proven! (see www.stitchlinks.com for more information) Knitting helps you to relax, helps lower blood pressure and helps restore confidence amongst other things. What’s even better, is that you get something really beautiful and often unique at the end of the process.
On our beginner’s course you will learn how to cast on, cast off, knit, purl, do cables, do rib, knit ‘in the round’ and much more. We only use beautiful, high quality yarns and needles (which you will keep) to make the process even more enjoyable! We make a different project each week, so by the time you have finished you will have made a flower brooch, a felted gadget purse, a pair of cabled fingerless mittens and a hat. Each week we add to the skills you have learnt and by the end you will be confident enough to tackle many different projects. All yarns, needles and patterns are included.
