Knit(ting) Happens (to be taught at the Hamilton Public Library)!

Looking to learn how to knit, or learn more about it? It may not surprise you to read that we’re hoping to fix that, as long as you qualify to take a knitting class!

How do you qualify? By answering the following questions: 

1: Are you a beginner? 

2: Are you between the ages of  8 & 18, and can get to the Hamilton Public Library from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on the first three Saturdays in November? 

3: If not, then are you an adult that can get to the Hamilton Public Library from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. on the first three Saturdays in November? 

If you answered “yes” to the first two, or the first and third, of those questions, then you qualify! Yes, I realize this bit of information could probably have been presented in a less confusing manner, but Mike just said I had more words available in these columns so I’m getting creative! Ok I’ll just give you the simple version:

Three-week Saturday Knitting Sessions, November 6, 13, 20. For kids and teens ages 8-18: 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., adults 1 -3 p.m. 

So now you’re thinking, great, Travis, I qualify, but I don’t have the materials needed to take such an amazing course. What if I told you that ALL MATERIALS WILL BE PROVIDED! You’ll learn to cast on, knit, increase, decrease, cast off, and purl! 

Registration is REQUIRED for these classes, and will be limited to eight participants per age group. Participants should come all three weeks, and it is not a rolling registration. If you miss one, it should be ok, but the teacher won’t be covering all the information in each class, as you will build on each other and people will need time to practice before learning the next step.

You can register on our homepage, in-person at the library, through social media, email, phone, traditional mail (or pony express), facsimile sense, UPS, candygram, message in a bottle, homing pigeon, or just shouting to us on the street. Note that some of these means of communication may not arrive to us before the class begins.

The course will be taught by Lynn Cooper, and made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out our selection of knitting books while you’re here. We might even pull some for you to browse after class!
