About this Class:
Join Sasha in the Fiber Studio to learn the basics of knitting, as well as spend a little time learning how to make your own yarn with a drop spindle. The class will be divided into 3 elements, two knitting projects and a mini course on the drop spindle.
Project 1: Students will learn how to cast on and use a basic garter stitch to create cotton dishcloths. Great for gifts! This style of knitting will provide participants with a perfect foundation to build on.
Project 2: Students will learn how to cast on and knit a chunky cowl using a garter stitch. This project teaches knitting using different size yarn and needles as well as how to knit ends together.
Spinning: In this class students will learn the basics of spinning fiber into yarn on a drop spindle. Supplies needed will be provided as part of the class fee, as well as a wooden drop spindle to keep.

We invite participants with children to bring them to this day time class. While the class is not for children and would be too challenging for most younger kids, children are welcome to spend the class time in the room at a table drawing or reading or some other activity while their parent is learning to knit. Participants with infants who want to wear their baby and nurse in class are also welcome. We ask that people use their own judgment about bringing their children to class. If they feel their child would be content with her or his own activity and not disrupt class, we encourage children to accompany their parents. However, the Dairy Barn is not responsible for children of participants. Children must be in the same room with their parent at all times. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
