Knit Together with Diane
Have fun learning to knit together in this two-part beginning knitting class! The class is for one adult and one younger person (ages 8+) to learn the basics of knitting together! You will learn how to cast on, bind off, knit and purl - all the basics you need! You will need two skeins of worsted weight yarn and 2 sets of size 9 knitting needles. Materials are available for purchase at the Yarn Nook at ThunderWillow.
I teach knitting, crocheting and Tunisian crochet classes at several yarn shops and art centers in the Minneapolis/St. Paul/St. Croix Valley area. One of my passions is knitting and crocheting with beads. I teach classes at ThunderWillow Community Arts in Hudson, at the Ramsey County and Hudson libraries, as well as through Hudson Community Education.
I have been teaching professionally for seven years. My background as a graphic artist in the publishing industry facilitates my ability to design, write, produce and publish my patterns.
I learned to knit continental or combination style at seven years old from my grandmother, who had to teach me in order to get her own knitting back from me! I live in western WI, with my husband, and the boss of the household, Thomas Edison, our stray kitty who came to stay. I am Yarn Happy Bead Happy!
