Beginning knitting will cover the basics of knitting with two needles. We will learn about  the various types of and weights of yarn. We will discuss choosing  needles and other supplies as we go. We will learn a variety of  basic stitches and have short book talks on books available from the library. We will do a lot of practice! And finally, we will work on  understanding pattern directions. Most of class time will be spent knitting . Projects include a sampler of practice stitches which we will fashion into a scarf or cowl, a coaster, a washcloth,and a hat.
