Entrelac In-the-Round

May 30, 2020
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT
Discover how to create a basket-weave effect with your knitting. In this project-based, introductory class, you’ll learn how to knit entrelac in-the-round while making a wrist warmer. Optional: After class you have the option to turn your wrist warmer into a mitten with the provided Pulse Point pattern by Holli Yeoh.

Socks for Beginners

July 9, 16, 23 + 30, 2020
6:00 to 7:30 p.m. PDT
For the knitter who has been knitting for a while and feels like they’ve found their footing. Let’s put a sock on it! Over a few weeks you will knit a top-down boot sock (DK-weight) or an around-home sock (Worsted-weight). You can also knit a tiny sock if you don’t have time for homework.

Beyond the Basics: Focus on Sweaters

September 10, 17, 24 + October 1, 2020
6:00 to 7:30 p.m. PDT
You know the knitting basics and you’ve really been wanting to knit a sweater but need some support. Come to class with a project and yarn in hand—you get to choose the pattern—and Holli will work with you to get your sweater started. Or maybe, you have a few WIPs that have stalled and need some help sorting them out? This is the perfect class for you!

Tip Toe Up Socks

September 12, 19 + 26, 2020
9:30 to 11:30 a.m. PDT
This toe-up sock class is a skill building opportunity to knit socks with completely replaceable heels and toes. Over three weeks we’ll tackle the beautifully invisible Turkish cast-on, Holli’s favourite increases, placeholder stitches for the heel, a stretchy sewn bind-off with no sewing, opening a large hole in your sock for the heel, and grafting on the needles. Take this opportunity to learn a “new- to-you” technique for working in the round: two circular needles, one long circular needle for the Magic Loop technique or double pointed needles. Or feel free to use needles that you’re most familiar with while learning the other new skills.

Short Rows

September 20, 2020
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT
Learn several methods for working short rows and see how they compare so you can decide on your favourite method. Features techniques found in the Ebb & Flow blanket and Eventide pullover patterns. Included will be the wrap and turn and Japanese short rows among other lesser known methods.

Beginner Fixing Mistakes

September 27, 2020
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT
$%#$@#^! Isn’t knitting supposed to be relaxing??
Learn how to get yourself out of a knitting related disaster and get back on track. Picking up dropped stitches, fixing missed increases and twisted stitches, un-knitting and other common fixes will be covered in this 3hr workshop. This is the perfect class for you if you’re tired of ripping back and are ready to level up their knitting skills.

Socks for Beginners

October 6, 13, 20 + 27, 2020
6:00 to 7:30 p.m. PDT
For the knitter who has been knitting for a while and feels like they’ve found their footing. Let’s put a sock on it! Over a few weeks you will knit a top-down boot sock (DK-weight) or an around-home sock (Worsted-weight). You can also knit a tiny sock if you don’t have time for homework.

Beginner Sweater Class

October 7, 14, 21 + 28
6:00 to 7:30 p.m. PDT
Using a baby cardigan pattern that Holli Yeoh has designed specifically for this class, you’ll learn the basics on sweater construction, shaping, swatching, pattern reading and lots of other helpful tips. Come to class with your first gauge swatch already knit and you’ll be well on your way to completing your first sweater. By the end of the class you’ll have the skills to tackle a full-sized sweater for yourself!

Intermediate Fixing Mistakes

October 10, 2020
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT
Knitting and mistakes go hand in hand. All knitters, even the most advanced ones make mistakes. You already know how to make simple fixes like dealing with a dropped stitch or twisted stitches. Now it’s time to kick it up a notch and learn some advanced skills to fix your mistakes. We’ll concentrate on lace and cables, ripping out small sections and recreating them row by row instead of ripping out several rows or the entire project.

Mending

October 24, 2020
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PDT
We spend too much time on our hand knits to throw them away when they get a hole. Join Holli Yeoh for a three-hour, practical repair class. You’ll learn Swiss darning, stocking darning and how to use a knitted patch to repair a hole. The techniques are transferable to commercially made garments, as well.
