    Hello! I have a lace sweater project I have been working on (bought my lovely yarn last year at your store), and my knitting guru friend has moved away! I’m a bit stuck on the project and looking for some help. Would the Stitch n Bitch night be appropriate for me to ask for help from other’s or can I sign up for some private help?

      I appreciate you asking! This sounds like a bit more help than a Stitch and Bitch evening. Some of our staff offer private lessons, but this also could be a great project to bring to one of our Beyond the Basics class which is a 4 week project-based class where you get hands-on support through any project(s) of your choice.

      Our beginner classes are 6 hrs total, either over three (2hr) or 4 (1.5hr) classes over the course of a month. Check our CLASSES tab to see when the next one class starts and what day of the week it runs in November. Happy knitting!

    Any likelihood of a lever knitting class?

      Sorry for the late reply; we don’t have any currently but we can put that into consideration for the Fall.

    I am interested in taking a sweater knitting class, do you have any coming up ?

    • baaadannas permalink
      January 25, 2015 5:37 pm

      We don’t have a sweater class scheduled, but you could take our Beyond the Basics and do a sweater of your choice! Call or stop by the shop and we can talk about your options!

    Want to a question about a project.
    Zero and seven
    After row 8 do i go back to row 2 to 8 as many times as i like? Or is it row 7 and 8 repeating?
    I went to 2 and this is the row that you put the marks in and it is very confusing. But need help moving on and hope that you can help. I came into the store with my son on the 23 and dropped about 150 on yarn and needles patterns.

    Thank you so much

      hi Chris, sorry for the delay, we have all been on various degrees of vacation for the last week. My understanding is that you repeat rows 2-8 but ignore the part about putting in the markers, but do all the same increases etc. My suggestion would be to contact the designer catilin through revelry, she is super awesome and very helpful with the pattern. hope that helps

      we don’t have any specific kids classes scheduled at this time – but we often have younger people in our regular classes, if that would work for you?

    Hello, I am interested in a beginner course starting in the new year. Any idea of what dates you might be looking at?
    I have picked up knitting a couple of times in the past few years only to drop it due to lack of direction! I’ve never really completed a project so I’d love to make it my new years resolution 🙂
