This class will be taught in person and is limited to six students. Students must be fully vaccinated by the start of class (2 weeks after J&J or 2 weeks after the second shot for Moderna and Pfizer) and provide proof of vaccination within three days of registering for the class. This class will be held after shop hours. Although the instructor and students will be fully vaccinated, masks will still be required (this is subject to change based on latest CDC guidelines).

If you're a new knitter, or your needles have been in the drawer for a few years, this 4 week intensive course refreshes the basics of knitting through a Knit-a-long group project, and at the end of it you will be in the best knitting shape of your life! The cowl is knit in sections that build skills week to week; all students should commit to a minimum of 20-30 minutes of knitting per day. The finished project is the Boot Camp Cowl by Kathy Johnson, and is suitable for both men and women.
